Milky Spore

The #1 Japanese beetle grub control! Milky Spore Powder (Bacillus popilliae) targets and discriminately works to attack the white grubs of Japanese Beetles. Spreads naturally as each infected beetle larvae dies, decomposes and releases billions of new spores into the soil. Time must be allowed for this process to completely saturate a treated area (2 to 4 years), but only one application is required as the disease continues to multiply on its own, as long as larvae are present. When there is no longer a grub infestation, the disease remains dormant, waiting for subsequent populations. This product is NOT registered for sale in California, Washington, Oregon, and Montana.

According to the USDA, Milky Spore can suppress the development of large Japanese beetle populations. This product is NOT harmful to humans, pets or wildlife. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency (PDF format) to learn more about B. popilliae.

How do I know if I have Japanese beetle grubs in my lawn?
Grubs feed on the roots of your grass which can become brown and die. Simply lift the dead grass and look for white larvae curled into the shape of a “C” about the size of a penny. Active grubs can completely destroy a lawn.
