Merit Turf, A Granular Insecticide Control For Chafer Grub
Today Joss, using the walkover spreader, applied a granular insecticide called 'Merit Turf' as a preventative measure to the quad lawn against the dreaded Chafer Grub. Best applied between May and July, prior to the eggs hatching, the insecticide will protect the grass from the grubs as they hatch and feed on the roots. For an example of the damage that can be caused refer to the blog entry for the 1st June 2011 'Chafer Grub', this image is not what Joss wants to see on the quad lawn! With no substantial amount of rainfall due over the next 24 hours the watering system was switched on to wash the granules in immediately.
