    That’s all I ever use is one of those Scott’s rotary spreaders. They work just fine, just look at the coverage you’re supposed to get and adjust the rotary spreader accordingly.

    I looked it up and it’s a 3 1/2 setting. I gotta act quick on those to prevent for spring. I also use liquid deer fence in granulated form that keeps deer , rabbits, squirrels and skunks too( I believe) away by scent. Stuff kept them away from my vegetable garden all summer. Will apply before dawn today.

    Be careful with Grub-EX. Stuff may be toxic to dogs.
    use in an area where dogs don't frequent .
    There's several non-toxic products around, but I don't know how effective they are.

    Edit:
    Some say it's not toxic once it's watered in, but I won't take a chance for my 4 legged friends

    Oh, I will, and thanks for the concern :thumbsup:
    I have an electric fence that runs close to where I have to use it . She only gets into the flowerbeds close to house and never makes it to the lawn. I’ll turn it up one setting just to be sure. Mostly she is out back anyway . That’s how I laid out the wire.

    Cool.
    Just more stuff to be concerned.
    My back yard is fenced in and I don't use any chemicals anymore since the dogs are there. Crabgrass is green, right?

    A guy I know had a GSP that died at a little over a year old. He had a lab verify that it was a liver cancer that was traced to a major fertilizer co's product that he used. An out of court settlement was awarded to him.

    Wow, that's crazy! I read the instructions and you're right, it says it's ok after watered in but I never used it where my dog would be, just didn't feel right but I never thought it would kill a dog by giving in cancer in under a year!

    I, too, use the Scott's Rotary spreader. I believe settings are on the bag of GrubEx.

    Also, I time the spring spreading before a rainy day or two. Try to keep the pup out of that area for a few days after.

    I put it down in the spring. Last year I didn't put any down and the lawn was destroyed by the grubs AND the skunks and moles....I watch the weather and put it down minutes before rain...It spreads it nicely. I may do a second application this fall. I have an open bag sitting in the shed...My REPLANTED areas are nice and green and of course crabgrassy because I have a Darwinian lawn...survival of the fittest and mow it...
