I use nematodes and they work. I do it every couple of years to keep the population down.
Love your videos. Out in Idaho, we have a lot of earwigs and some inevitably end up in the house. Scares the heck out of me when I grab a towel and get an earwig with it. Any good tips on earwig control?
Your posts are so informative. Thank you!!! Will use some of these ideas to rid the yard of those pesky beetles. Yep, we have moles, voles, and skunks… Time to get rid of all of them.
Thank you Mike for the free book! I’ve learned a lot from you web site, God bless you! Diana
Have you ever tried using milky spores which last 15-20yrs per application?
Nate, no I haven’t used Mikly spore myself. It lasts a long time but it also takes a very long time to get the lawn area properly treated and protected. I’ve read good things about the product, from the company that sells it, but I really don’t know for sure how well it works.
Help! We are in the middle of a millapede migration. We have thousands of these creepy little arthopods crawling out of the woods in the wee hours of the morning. I have used Ortho Max Lawn treatment on the yard and concrete around the house. It has helped, but we still have a bunch surviving. Our property is heavily wooded, even within 15 of of the house. Do you have any better solutions? We have pugs that potty in the yard. I have been washing their feet each time they go out, but I am still worried that they will be harmed by the Orth pellets. We are in the midst of a very dry spell.
Hi Mike- I would like to read about invasive flowering plants in my neck of the woods-Long Island, NY. I am constantly pulling up bindweed and a purple flowering plant with a stalk that looks a bit like bamboo. Its leaves are sword-like. It is spreads very quickly. Any suggestions? You have a very informative website!
Ginny, I really don’t know what you are dealing with. Each state has a list of invasive plants, your co-operative extensive service should have that list posted online.
[...] I made a movie about how to get rid of Japanese Beetles and Grubs. Check it out! [...]
great video and great job mike keep the good work thanks
great job mike thks
Gosh! Thank you so much Mike. Very informative. Love your videos, and teachings. Couldn’t do this without you.
Do the grubs leave small piles of soil when they emerge? I have those very small piles all over my yard, and sometimes I find a very large beetle (2-3 inches long.) What are they, and do they do damage to my yard?
