    Im not a big fert guy. but in my front yard i have a nice lawn but a small 2x6 area that the turf had died. i put down whatever the guys at johndeere tell me to and have a irrigation system. so i look at the area when i was mowing today and picked up the dead grass.... no roots in it. i was all ticked off. after i calmed down i took a look and there was 3 grubs that i can see. i have to treat for them now. my question is i have a bunch of new seeding in a area right next to it what insecticide should I use to treat??? PS i want to slit seed in a week also.

    Thank for the help guys.

    A customer had me look at her property last week. She has about 75k sq.ft. of turf that has been dug up by wild turkeys eating the grubs. I've seen turkeys out there but can't confirm they are doing all the damage. Anyway, she was concerned about the active ingredient in Dylox getting in the food chain. Hunting season is just around the corner.
    Does she have a valid concern? How does the AI in dylox 6.2 work? We haven't seen grubs like this in twenty years.

    I'd rather eat a turkey that eats dylox, than a pig that eats his own crap.

    Pigs are yummy. I'm pretty sure I won't get the job because I didn't know the answer and I won't BS a customer. Telling her I wasn't sure but would try to find out didn't seem to impress her.

    I would rather tell someone I didn't know something and not get the job, then to give them a wrong answer.

    You will win in the end by saying "I don't know" and I will get back to you.
