I'm sure you would get some control of sod webworms with Merit. Merit may not be labeled for sod webworms but it is labeled for use on turf and that's all that matters. However, sod webworms are easy to kill (difficult to prevent) I would go with a much cheaper product such as Cross Check.

Thanks for the insight........

I realize that Merit is not labeled for webworm just wondering if anyone had luck with control for webworm, but apparently not.

I will use Dylox where needed. This is the first year in many that webworm outbreaks are so widespread.

Appreciate the time!

I offer preventive grub control. Have been using Merit with fertilizer. Next year, it will be Mach 2, probably with no nitrogen applied during summer. Mach 2 is also labeled for sod webworm.

Anyone here use Mach 2? How effective is it on webworms?

while sod webworm is not on the label for merit, but is on it for mach 2 as these products are a little pricy why not try tempo for sod webworm. it is alot cheaper and works great

Merit will not touch the webworm don't waste your time or money thinking it will. mach 2 is labeled for w-worm army worm and cut worm but the residual is about 2 weeks after application. Normally in our area those particular worms are not an issue during the application timing for grubs

agree, for control over webworm their are other products that work very well for less cost.

You could also use acephate, a.k.a. Orthene, Lescofate, etc. It's dirt cheap if you and your customers don't mind the smell.

Economically, if it is a sod-webworm/grub situation, then Dialox is a good choice. If it is a sod-webworm/chinchbug stuation, then Carbaryl (Sevin) is a good choice.
