    Not sure about webworm, but full rate is essential for most of the other bad ones.

    If sod webworm is an annual problem, you should apply Mach II in late May. You will have season long protection, even if it's a hot year and there are 3 Generations.

    Bifenthren works for 1 generation larve only. Problem with that is egg laying adults from nearby will come around to drop off some more eggs, 4-6 weeks later, after Bifenthren residual is gone.

    The original poster asked for a curative. Isn't Mach 2 a preventative???
