Dave -<p>We have used Merit successfully as a systemic season long grub control for a few seasons now. We usually use a fertilizer/merit combo - Scotts ProTurf or Andersons, at the recommended rate, and definitely water it in. We've had no problems. For new accounts or accounts where we opted not to use Merit (this year we had drought conditions in Connecticut), we treated with Dylox 6.2G. Dylox is effective, needs to be watered in, and has a shorter residual than the Diazinon. It moves readily through thatch, and is fairly fast acting. Neither product is cheap, but both are effective. Hope this helps.<p>PHIL<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply - http://members.aol.com/slsnursery<br>Ivy League Landscaping - http://members.aol.com/scagrider
