    You shouldn't have to do a second app as long as you got the first one down at the correct rate and got it watered in properly.

    will putting down an application this late in the season for grubs still work and have an effect on their population? i was under the understanding that a late season app was pretty much worthless?

    It will work. Besides, it is still relatively early.

    In our area the little animals that hunt grubs are tearing the turf up looking for the grubs. We have to put stuff down to stop that on commericial properties.

    Dylox works fast (once watered). You can use it effectively as long as grubs are consistently feeding near the soil surface.....
