How long will it take Yates Grub Kill & Protect for Lawns to kill curl grubs and can I re-apply quickly?

Birds are digging up the lawn to get to the grubs and I'm concerned an unexpected heavy rain may have diluted the initial spread (which was the listed maximum rate).

Hi Bob,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

If the initial spray has been diluted by heavy rain, the second application can be carried out anytime. For controlling curl grubs, the product needs to be lightly watered in immediately after application, however, for lawn grubs(caterpillars), we recommend no watering or mowing 24 hours after application. 


Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
