beetleGONE!® is the first Bacillus thuringiensis galleriae (Btg) bio-insecticide to control adult scarab beetles (and the larvae or turf grubs) at a level of efficacy equivalent to chemical standards but without the side effects or off-target damage to beneficial insects, such as pollinators. With beetleGONE!, entire landscapes or crops can be economically, effectively and safely protected from destructive beetle pests such as Japanese, Asiatic, June and Oriental Beetles as well as European, Cupreous, Southern and Northern Masked Chafers. Unlike other biological or chemical grub-control products, beetleGONE can be used as a curative treatment for grub control as well as a preventative treatment.

General Application Instructions for beetleGONE!
For Beetles • Apply beetleGONE! at a rate of 1 to 2 ounces per gallon of water (slightly less than 1/2 cup or 7 tablespoons per gallon of water). • For larger application, use beetleGONE! at a rate of 2.5 pounds per acre (or more for heavier infestations) per application in up to 30 gallons (for low volume mist blowers) or 100 gallons (for high volume hydraulic sprayers) of water per acre.
For Grubs beetleGONE! may also be used as a wettable powder for grub control on turf at a rate of 0.25 lbs. per 1,000 square feet (1/2 a cup or 8 tbs. of beetleGONE! per gallon of water per 1,000 square feet). Or 1 lb covers 4,000 square feet.
Application Notes for beetleGONE! • Re-apply beetleGONE! every 7-10 days when beetles are active. Excess rain may require more frequent applications (for beetles only...for grubs once a year in the late summer/early fall is enough). • The use of a sticker is highly recommended to extend the time that the product is active. Nu Film®P is the suggested spreader. • If using beetleGONE! for grub control, water in with 0.5 inch of water, or apply before a moderate rain. beetleGONE! must reach the root zone where the white grubs feed.
