When Do You Put Down GrubEx?
If you have ever had grub problems in your lawn, it’s for darn sure you don’t want them again. So this time of year I get the question: “When is the best time to spread GrubEx on my lawn?”
For those of you who know all about grubs you do not need to click here to read a blog posting I wrote last year that explains the grub cycle and how you protect your lawn from being destroyed. You just want to know when is the best time to put GrubEx down since there is such a wide application time frame listed on the package. You will also note a direction on the package to not apply to waterlogged soils and to water after application. Since the soils tend to be very wet this time of year and since the grubs will not be laying their eggs until summer, I asked our researchers when they apply GrubEx to their lawns. Their answer: May. (If you are reading this and May is in your rearview mirror and you have not put your GrubEx down yet this year, apply as soon as you can up until late summer.)
So I follow their advice and put my GrubEx down in Early May. Click here to get more info on Scotts GrubEx.
