    Will beneficial nematodes work this late in the season? Does cedar oil work?

    I hit a bad grub infestation with Cedar Cure and NP123 and it knocked them all out. I put it on at the high rate with a hydroseeder at @ 5 gallons of water per k. I was unable to water it in. That was the second application i did, the first , put on with a pull behind sprayer followed by an inch of rain overnight, didn't seem to kill anything but Barry and ICT sent me a free retreat and it worked great.

    Do you need to soak the infested area with Cedarcure? Can I use just a pump sprayer? I have a 100 gal. tank that I only use with their tea.

    We are recommending ICT NPP at 4oz/K. It must be irrigated in.

    There are plenty of OMRI products for insect control.

    How much you spending per 1000 SF for "natural" treatment?

    NPP alone, 4oz/K for curative grub control, $74.50/gal + shipping, NOP approved.
