As per this month issue of Grounds Maint. mag<br>this is becoming a less effective treatment.<p>The grubs are building up a tolerance.

Stones right, the milky spore is not as effective as it used to be. If you are looking for another alternative, try nematodes. It runs about $80 and covers approx 8000 sq ft. You put this sponge in a backpack sprayer and spray the lawn areas. They are microscopic wormlike creatures that feed on grub larvae I believe.
