Additional Information

Grub Guard Beneficial Nematodes Control Your Garden's Worst Enemy

  • Contains naturally occurring, beneficial microorganisms that help control Japanese beetles
  • Attacks the soil-dwelling, grub stage of the beetle
  • Starts working within 48 hours, keeps working all summer long
  • Sprayer not included; we recommend our hose-end Dial Sprayer

Japanese beetles are one of the most destructive garden pests. As adults, they ravage your flowers and vegetables. As young grubs they devour your lawn's root system, and they attract skunks and moles. Grub Guard beneficial nematodes are naturally occurring microorganisms that live in the soil, feeding on Japanese beetle grubs. Unlike chemical controls, they won't harm earthworms or most beneficial insects, and they are safe around pets. Single-application sponge. The 1 million size will treat 2,000 square feet; the 6 million size will treat 12,000 square feet.

Product Details
  • Contains two species of beneficial nematodes: Steinernema carpocapsae and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora
  • Sponge is 2-1/2" x 6"
  • 1 million size will treat 2,000 square feet
  • 6 million will treat 12,000 square feet
  • Also controls Colorado potato beetle grubs, cutworms, root weevils, flea larvae and other soil-dwelling insects

    The Nematodes are shipped out and ready to use or ready to refrigerate.
    The instructions are easy to follow and application is easy if you have a sprayer. I used them last year and they seem to help keep grubs count down for beetles and bugs beneath the mulch and dirt from eating the roots. Since I have planted in several areas, I see less and less grubs.

        The Grub Guard arrived very quickly. It was applied as soon as weather permited. It is too soon to know if it was effective. If the problem really is grubs, and the lawn spots fit the prscrition, hopefully we will know by next summer if we have made progress in solving the problem.
        Thanks for your help. Always love the calaloge.

          I have used Grub Guard for 5 years. Because of my cold winters, I apply every spring. I add food coloring to the mixture so I can see when I need to refill my hose-mounted sprayer and apply in the Spring in the evening. If your winter temperatures are mild you only need to apply this once. These little guys eat grubs, yum, and works so much better than any chemical I have tried. PET AND CHILDREN SAFE AND SAFE FOR YOU.

            I use it under my hives to control small hive beetles. I have been using the product for three years and have all but eliminated small hi pave beetles in my apiary. Not sure if they winter over so have reapplied in the spring when the soil warms to about 60 degrees. Need to keep the soil moist so the nematodes will survive

                Easy to apply, once you figure out the ,sometimes
                conflicting steps of mixing and application. Several weeks later it appears to have been effective. No additional (spreading) patches of
                brown grass. Hard to know how this awful dry season has played into this.

                I have problems with slugs and snails. The slugs are fairly easy to control but small snails are not as they don't descend the plant every day so are not in contact with slug bait. This company used to sell slug control nematodes and I have been told the grub nematodes are the same, and to use the grub product. Hope it works.
