    Hey guys: Couple of questions: Is there any reason for NOT putting down a little micro-nutrient plus iron in the next few weeks? And, how does anyone know the shelf-life of Talprid?

    If you haven't applied Lime in the past month, Micros are good.

    What product were you thinking about using?

    I don't have a reply for those great little worms though.

    Talprid should store well. Not sure though. Micro-nutrients should be applied. Iron will green a lawn up but fades quickly....

    The Talpirid worms are sensitive to melt down in heat. During the summer while they're in the truck it is necessary to lay the cartons down so the worms are flat otherwise you'll have a mess when the carton is opened. The rest of the time they should be stored in a cool dark place. Talpirid stores well in a cool dry place.
