does 'Grub Kill & Protect for Lawns' kill the friendly garden worms?

I want to use this product on my lawn and garden bed and want to know if it also kills the good earth worms in the soil?

Hi Simon,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

This product is safe for non-target organisms like earthworms and bees.
The active ingredient stays exactly where it's applied. Unlike many other pesticides, it is not absorbed into the flowers or plants. 


Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any other query. 

Happy gardening.
