I was out doing an aeration today for a new customer. He was going to apply milky spore to his lawn to combat a grub problem. He asked for my advice. I have never delt first hand with milky spore. I don't know much about it, other than it has a very long lasting effect, 5-7 years. The customer had some knowledge on the stuff. Aparantly, you mark off your lawn in a grid, and apply a tiny amount every so many feet. Very tedious and time consuming, not to mention expensive. He told me of a new type of milky spore, a spreadable granule. It can be spread in the same way as a conventional fertilizer. Here is the part that got my attention. $39/bag, and a bag will cover 7000 square feet. The initial cost may be higher than a conventional insecticide, however, considering the long lasting effect, it would seem to be less costly in the long run. Is anyone using this on customers lawns? Are people willing to buy it? Does it really work as long as they say it does? I would think that you could charge a bit more for spreading the stuff, especially if it lasts 5-7 years.
