I have always known that we have a little grub problem in our lawn. Grubs are such ugly, disgusting little creatures.
Remember when I told you about planting our two new trees over the weekend? Well, when I was digging the hole for the Plum, I came across three grubs in the dirt. That’s a pretty high concentration for such a small area.
Grubs are bad for lawns because the eat the roots of grass and leave nice big brown areas. Last year, I spread out some insect control and fertilizer which seemed to help. This year, they are back. It seems like every time I dig a hole, I come across these ugly little things.
A while ago, I purchased some Spectracide Triazicide Once & Done! Insect Killer Granules. The price was right and the bag made a lot of promises. I don’t have a spreader, so it has taken me some time to pin down my neighbor Tim to let me borrow his.
Last night, before Laura and I went to the track, I decided to spread some of the Spectracide out over the back yard. I wanted to test it out back there, just in case it kills everything. I don’t know why it would kill the grass, but I am just being careful. I also had a small window because you need to spread the stuff either right before it rains or you need to water it in. So, it was drizzling last night. The time was right.
If nothing goes wrong in the backyard, I will spread it across the front yard and closer to the house. I’ll let you know what happens.
