Hi everyone!

I am in dire help with getting rid of my grub/Japanese beetle infestation.

It started as small brown patches in yard and now it has lead to portions of grass completely missing. I have tried using Nematodes on two different occasions, but that did not help or stop the problem.

Then I hired a pest and lawn company for 3 months, but somehow the treatments seemed to accelerate my grass disappearing.

I have read about using Milky Spore and even cornmeal. I am at my wits end and am seeking advice from anyone with suggestions.

Thanks!

My lawnmowing guy recently recommended GrubEx for some brown patches in my lawn, but I have yet to try it. Anyone else tried this?

Second GrubEx. Put some down just a couple of weeks ago, beetles are gone, and it will kill grubs and eggs in your lawn for an entire season. Works great.

Do you only put it on your lawn or do you also put it in your flower beds? I have grubs galore, and it only helps attract armadillos to my gardens and lawn. It would nice to get rid of them everywhere.

Look for Neil Sperry on FaceBook. He has a bunch of "Notes" and it is all free. He is "THE" guru of TX gardening. Has a new book out.

I hit the flower beds as well. The only place I don't put it is in the garden boxes.

Thanks - that's the way I did it this weekend. I'm excited to see how it works out.

I did a landscaping project this weekend. I cut about 150 square feet of sod to put a new bed in the back yard. Every grub I dug up was dead. Stuff works well.
