    Can anyone tell me what the right way to go about re-planting a lawn is after grub treatment? Is there a waiting period between treatment and planting? Or can it be done at the same time? The area in question is around 3,000 square feet. Also what Grub control products work best? Any opinions? Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated! Thank everybody for all of your help in the past- This site Rocks!!:usflag:

    Insecticides do not have any effect on turf germination and growth. If you have a high density of grubs (6-7 per square foot for seedling turf) I would apply Dylox (aka Bayer Advanced 24 hr Grub Control) at the time of seeding. Plan on applying a product with imidacloprid in early summer since the Dylox probably won't kill most of the grubs.

    PSUturf's recommendation is right on the money.
