    Next year continue a preventive program of merit between May 15
    (for billbugs as well) and then end of July. Must be watered in immediately if you are spraying.

    For curative, use dylox ( while it's available ) and again water in the application.

    Diazinon will also do fairly well as a curative.

    Carbamates ( sevin ) will not give any residual to speak of and will get tied up in the thatch if you have alot.

    2 Merit apps.??? A little pricey huh??? I am having a hard time getting any Diazinon products, but that might have something to do with the fact that Diazinon won't be labeled for turf in the very near future. Dylox is the absolute best curative out there.
