Your Lawn’s Roots… Here Today… Gone Tomorrow

May 20, 2016

How long do you think your beautiful lawn would stay alive without its root system?  A day, maybe two?  Well, if root-munching grubs show up later this summer you will find out.

Right now is the best time to prevent hungry grubs from feasting on your lawn like an all-you-can-eat buffet later this summer.  Fortunately Scotts GrubEX will wipe them out first.  GrubEX has a one-of-a-kind formula to kill grubs early on in their life cycle before they can destroy your lawn’s root system.  If you do not take the step to stop them now they could leave you with brown patches of lawn that peel right up like a carpet.  Just one application in late spring protects your lawn for the rest of the season.

Be sure to water your lawn good after spreading GrubEX.

Protect your turf by applying Scotts GrubEX this weekend to destroy the grubs before they destroy your lawn.

    Hi Ashton! I think I made a bad mistake. I put grubex and weed and feed down in the same day. Will my grass die?

    • Hi John
      Do not think they will conflict with each other. The main issue is the Weed & Feed goes down on moist foliage when rain is not expected for 24 hours so the particles stick to the weed leaves. GrubEX goes down followed by a good watering so the active ingredient gets down to the grass roots ASAP. Not sure if you watered afterwards or let all of the particles lay on the surface of the lawn.

    Hi Ashton! I would like to apply Grub ex tomorrow, but looking at the forecast, we are to get rain for 6 days straight. Is this too much watering in? Will it still be effective?

    • Hi Donna
      An inch or so of rain over the next 6 days would be ok. If you suspect you will be getting more than that or if you suspect you will have standing water, you might delay your plans.
