I would like to know an organic alternative to eradicating brown beetle in the lawn.
There are a lot of beetles that like to chew grass, live in the turf and use these areas for egg laying. In many cases their young will do more damage than the adult stage so we’ve learned that the combination of ECO GRANULES and GRUB KILLER RTS is a good organic option that works on most every beetle. The Granules should be spread first and applied every two months when the targeted beetles are active. These are slow acting and take some water to activate. Over the course of 1-2 months they’ll dissipate down into the soil working on grubs and other pests which want to nest just under the dirt. But because this product is slow acting, you’ll need to spray some Grub Killer over the top for quick results.
But the good news is Grub Killer can be used as needed and initially you may have to use it every 2-4 weeks if you have a persistent problem or if the local community has some kind of an outbreak of the targeted pest. Since it’s approved for organic gardening, the Grub Killer can be used as often as 2-3 times a week. It comes with it’s own “ready to spray” jug so you only need to hook it up to your garden hose and you’re ready to go to work.
