The 2 cycles of Grub damage occurs in the spring as ground temps warm into the 50 to 60 degree range and in the

unattended, the cost to reseed and the eye sore will always remind you to never let it happen again. If
you are capable of spraying, you will save lots of service fees and also save your landscape investment.
Areas that are more heat and drought stressed will often show symptoms first, These areas are often in full sun,
and have a south-facing slope. Turf that is well-drained, moist, and have high organic matter are especially
susceptible. Grub damage is easily determined by pulling back the sod. If the turf pulls back easily as if to lift
pieces of sod, this is often grub damage. Grubs feed on the roots at the thatch/soil interface, which results in
the turf being easily “peeled back”. Often times the grubs will be present where the sod has been removed. If the
soil is dry, digging down a short distance may reveal the

The strobilurin fungicides inhibit cell growth by preventing cells from efficiently generating
energy in their mitochondria. Strobilurins are active against a broad range of fungi but are non-toxic to mammals
and birds. The low toxicity characteristics of strobilurins have earned them the EPA's designation of "reduced
