Milky Spore Disease For Japanese Beetle (10oz)

High quality milky spore powder, containing the bacteria Bacillus popillae. Milky spore powder inoculates an area of turf and can control Japanese Beetle grubs (Popillia japonica) for 10-15 years. Spores multiply inside the grubs and when the grub infestation subsides, the spores lie dormant in the soil, waiting for subsequent populations.

Milky Spore Disease takes 2 to 3 years to achieve complete control and should be supplemented during this time with Japanese Beetle traps, which trap out adult beetles or parasitic nematodes.

Many consumers don't make the connections between adults beetles that attack roses, grape vines, fruit trees and 150 other pants and their larvae laid in the form of eggs in grass. 1,000 adult beetles will lay fifty thousand grubs in you lawn each year. Next summer, the grubs emerge from the soil as adult beetles competing a one year life cycle.

Each grub that dies from Milky Spore decays and releases three billion new spore. Once all of the grubs are destroyed, the spore will remain dormant but viable in the soil until new grubs come along even years later.

Won't harm beneficial insects, animals, pets or man. Safe for use around wells, ponds and streams. Harmless to bird, bees and fish.

Apply in a checkerboard pattern throughout lawn area. Best control occurs on non-tilled soil. Apply it at 10 oz/2,500 sq ft and 40 oz/10,000 sq ft or .25 acre.
