USGA Summary Points:S. scarabaei is highly effective as a curative white grub control. Due to multiplication in infected grubs, even very low S. scarabaei rates can provide very high control rates within one month. The best long-term effect of S. scarabaei is expected with low rates that allow some grubs to survive until spring allowing S. scarabaei an additional reproduction round before summer. S. scarabaei can provide reliable white grub control for at least two years after application and persists for at least four years in treated areas.
