Organic Grub Control For Lawns

Kill grubs organically with our all-natural grub control formula. grubGONE!® is a granular, bio-insecticide formulated to control turf grubs without side effects and without damage to beneficial insects and pollinators. Use grubGONE!® grub control on your entire landscape, including turf and ornamentals, to protect your property from destructive beetles like Japanese, Asiatic, June and Oriental Beetles in addition to European, Cupreous, Southern and Northern Masked Chafers. For existing adult beetles, use beetleGONE!® to control populations without chemical side effects. Organic grubGONE!® is pet and environmentally friendly, and is friendly to bees and other pollinators.

Key Features of grubGONE!® - For Your Lawn Care Needs

Active Ingredient - Bacillus thuringiensis galleriae (Btg): grubGONE!® contains Btg, a naturally occurring bacterium that specifically targets and eliminates grub larvae, while being safe for humans, pets, and beneficial insects.

Product Size Options: Available in various sizes to suit different lawn sizes - from small home gardens to large landscapes. This allows for cost-effective and efficient application regardless of your lawn's size.

Easy-to-Spread Granules: Rapid Action Formula: grubGONE!® starts working upon contact with the soil, offering quick relief from grub infestations and protecting your lawn from further damage.

Long-lasting Protection: Provides extended control of grubs, ensuring your lawn remains healthy and free from infestations for longer periods after application.

Non-Toxic to Pollinators: Unlike many chemical pesticides, grubGONE!® is non-toxic to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, supporting biodiversity in your garden.

No Watering-In Required: Unlike some lawn treatments, grubGONE!® does not require watering-in after application, saving time and effort and making it more convenient for busy homeowners.

Odorless Formula: The product is odorless, making it more pleasant to use compared to many chemical alternatives.

Safe for All Types of Grass: It is safe for use on all grass types, ensuring versatility and eliminating the need for multiple products for different areas of your lawn.

Environmentally Sustainable Packaging: Comes in environmentally friendly packaging, aligning with the ethos of natural, responsible lawn care.

Seasonal grub control for your lawn

grubGONE!®, natural and OMRI listed grub control is effective on the first to third stages of beetle development (egg, larvae and pupa). grubGone!® can be used both preventatively before grub emergence or curatively for an active population.

Timing is key for maximum effectiveness. Apply grubGONE!® during two critical periods for optimal grub control:

Spring Application (April to June): Target grubs as they start developing, preventing them from maturing and causing damage to your lawn.

Fall Application (Late August to Early October): Control late-season grubs to reduce next year's populations, ensuring your lawn stays healthy year-round.

Being OMRI Listed, grubGONE!® guarantees that it adheres to the highest organic standards, making it a safe and environmentally friendly choice for organic lawn care. Whether you're an eco-conscious homeowner or a professional landscaper, grubGONE!® is the ideal solution for organic and effective seasonal grub control.
