According to several of the lawn care experts we spoke to, milky spore is not an effective treatment for grubs. Several use Dylox, which is an insecticide. A good do-it-yourself treatment is Bayer’s Merit product. The trick is proper irrigation – about one-half inch of water – to get the treatment down into the roots where the grubs are doing their damage. If you’d prefer to try an organic treatment, like cinnamon, campfer leaves or milk toast, keep in mind they require a large quantity, which can increase the labor and cost.
