Eliminate grubs in your lawn for up to 20 years! Milky Spore (Bacillus popilliae) attacks the white larvae/ grubs of Japanese Beetles. Spreads naturally as each infected beetle larvae dies, decomposes and releases billions of new spores into the soil. However, 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 problem, the disease remains dormant, waiting for subsequent populations. This product is NOT registered for sale in California, Washington, Oregon, and Montana.
