    The back section of my own lawn has been sort of neglected. Always mowed, but that's it. It rained a good deal yesterday and out of curiosity I flipped over a little patch.... And sure enough there were more damn grubs that anything I've ever seen. I would love to get rid of em - But is it too late? What should I use?

    The ground is pretty much covered in dead crabgrass. What do you think I should do to it after I kill the grubs?

    For the grub CONTROL? No. It is not too late. They are still near the surface and feeding HARD with the mild temps we are having. As far as the seeding,...it is getting late,..but with the mild temps we're still having, we're still doing it. Not prime time, and even risky, but we are still doing it if it needs it.

    I used dylox last two weeks ago and rechecked the lawn two days ago. The're dead. Aerate, verticut, and overseed with a starter asap. It's going to get cold soon.

    Dylox is the way to go at this point

    Horse-puckey! They're STILL feeding! The ground's a LOT warmer than the air in the early fall!
