    We are going to allectus this season, great rebate from bayer and great feedback from people who used it last season.

    heard good things about it, never use it much in houston, grub damage is rare around my area, chinchbugs are another story all together!

    I will be switching also. Are you going with the granular and if so what AI .18 or .225? I will use the .225. How does the rebate work, I havent gotten that far into the buying process yet. Still working on starting R1 and deciding what I will use on R2.

    We have not started yet b/c we had to go and get 12 inches of snow Friday:hammerhead:

    Ant,

    Did you do a split ap?

    I heard you need to for effective grub prevention because of the lower rate of Merit.

    Silly question maybe.
    But is the liquid labeled for residential turf?
    Where can I find a label.

    Ant, what did you spray it through?
    What rate?

    Thanks,

    Bob
