Sounds like in your area the time to start preventive application. Would recommend an application every 4 weeks.

Ok, I'll go ahead and do an application now. I saw in the milorganite thread that you wait two weeks and then do a milorganite app. I think I'll do that too. I was wondering how long in between.

Thanks for your help!

You can apply both the same day.

I am doing my second application for the year of Milorganite in 2 weeks based on the schedule I am applying it which is late March, May 30, July 4, and Sept 1.

Yup, I threw down the Caravan G by Syngenta two weeks ago, as I started to notice a few fungus rings showing up, and knew it was time to ward off the grub invasion (amongst other bugs). I really like that stuff a lot, have seen it save lawns from fungus and disease attacks a few times. Not the cheapest on the shelf, and not available via normal retailers, but great stuff in one application. I buy it from Southern States Coop for about $60 a bag. I have 10,000sf of lawn space, it takes two bags to cover it. Lasts about 8 weeks for me. If fungus gets back into the lawn during that time, I spot treat with Eagle20 spray in a little mixed spray bottle.

I have a neighbor who I’ve watched for the past two years work hard on getting their lawn full and lush. They’ve gone through 3 different lawn service companies, have spread compost everywhere, even cow manure one year (not pleasant - stunk and flies everywhere). Yet they just couldn’t get it to go where they wanted it. I looked at it for them, they have a large zelkova tree (lots of shade) on a flat lawn. I told them Caravan G as I figured disease was present along with bugs. They agreed to try it. Two weeks later, it’s on the path of recovery. Their current yard company was against the idea, said it wouldn’t help and a waste of money, only their magic sauce could fix it. They were actually mad at me for “interfering” with them. Now my neighbor understands my viewpoint on some these companies - the worst thing for them is a perfect lawn, because then they’re not needed as much.

Fortunately all to typical of lawn services. Glad to hear you were able to help out your neighbor.

Might have to give Caravan G a try sometime.

If I don't get good results with the Scotts Disease Ex, I'll try the Caravan G, but too early to tell right now.

For those of you who use Scotts Disease Ex or just want to try it, Scotts on Amazon offers it every once in a while for $11/bag. They do limit the number of bags, but that's a great savings over what I can go down and buy it for at the big box stores. Free shipping for prime members too

Sounds like your progressing well.

Sounds like it is time to setup a camelcamelcamel price monitoring for Scott’s Disease Ex.

Just checked and it’s $17.09 which is a decent discount. Looks like it was last at the $11.00 price on May 25th.
