Apply MERIT 0.5 G Insecticide uniformly over the area being treated with normally used granular application equipment.

Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or saturated with water. Applications cannot exceed a total of 80 lbs per acre per year.

  • Merit Granules- Turf Insecticide
    By Patricia Chandler on 8/19/2015
    AMAZING!! I though at first it might be an expensive loss however, the grubs were obviously gone as no new moles started tunnels and there was NO activity of moles at all. I recommend this highly. It was some of the best money spent in my yard and YES IT WORKS GREAT!!!!
