Grub protection time is coming soon. Order Now.

Grubs will be hatching soon. When they do, they have a tendency to do a lot of damage to lawns. Here in Ontario, Merit is no longer a legal product (even though the granular Merit that we once used is less poisonous than table salt).

Nematodes are now the only choice in Ontario. Nematodes are microscopic worms that find their way into the grubs. Once inside, they multiply and produce a toxin that knocks the grubs off the scene.

Nematodes are living organisms and need special treatment and care. They require lots of moisture to prevent them from drying and dying. Ideally, applications done during a rainfall are the best. Unfortunately, there aren't enough rainy days during the August-September time period for everyone to get a nematode treatment. The folks with sprinklers are lucky - set the sprinkler system to manual and give the lawn a watering. This will get the nematodes off the lawn and down into the soil.

Please order your Grub Protection Now. There are indications that Nematodes may be in short supply.
