Japanese Beetle Grub killer #851208
Asked September 25, 2023, 4:22 PM EDT
We stopped by your booth at Broomfield Days and spoke to a very nice lady that recommended a more natural Japanese Beetle grub killer. I thought she called something with the name grub in the title "Grub something." Would anyone be able to tell me what that was? We don't want to use something that will harm bees, hummingbirds, etc.
Thank you so much!
Thanks for stopping by our booth at Broomfield Days and for reaching out! Although I did not speak to you myself, my assumption based on the information you provided is that they were referring to a product that uses a strain of the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis. One of the product names is "grubGONE!"
Bacillus thuringiensis are used as a biocontrol and are not harmful to pollinators.
