Our lawns are susceptible to grubs and insects that like to dine on the healthy grass we have put effort into maintaining. Some pests are so microscopic that you might not notice until the damage is done, taking weeks or months to repair. Armyworms, beetles, and other grubs can quickly cause extensive damage to your grass. Luckily, there is a way to combat these pests and protect your lawn. Acelepryn is an insecticide that protects against common lawn damaging pests while being safe for use around pets and people. Let’s go over how to protect your property with Acelepryn.
What is Acelepryn?
Acelepryn is an insecticide that will protect your lawn from grubs and caterpillars in one single application for up to six months. The advanced formula works by targeting a specific muscle receptor common in damage-causing grubs and insects. Other organisms like bees, earthworms, birds, fish, and mammals do not use the same muscle receptors and remain unaffected, making Acelepryn one of the safest insecticides on the market.
Why is Grub Control Important?
Prevention is the first line of defense for preserving your lawn. The healthiest lawns are the most tempting targets to grass-damaging pests, and by the time you notice something is wrong, these pests have already done extensive damage. Recovering from a grub attack can take weeks to months and includes extensive insecticide application, so being proactive with your lawns’ health is critical. Being aggressive with your grub control ensures your property remains healthy and looking great without the need for harmful chemicals and months of recovery.
Acelepryn Controls More Than Just Grubs
Besides preventing grubs from beneath the surface, Acelepryn protects lawns from insects that feed on the surface, such as billbugs and caterpillars. Though these insects live above the soil, they are hard to see, and they cause significant damage. Billbug larvae feed on the interior of the grass stem, hollowing it out and then dropping it to the soil surface to feed on, making them difficult to spot. If you notice any irregularly shaped tufts of grass that are pulling up from the surface, it may indicate a billbug larvae infestation. In addition, caterpillars and armyworms can cause decaying turf patches that rapidly increase in size when left unattended.
When to Apply Acelepryn
Acelepryn offers the most effective control when applied in April or May. The wide application window of Acelepryn gives lawn care professionals the flexibility to make grub applications at a convenient time. For optimal results, it is good to identify the type of pest you are dealing with, as this will affect the amount of insecticide needed and the best application time.
