grubGONE! organic grub controlgrubGONE!® is the first Bacillus thuringiensis galleriae (Btg) bio-insecticide to control 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 grubGONE!, entire landscapes can be economically, effectively and safely protected from destructive beetle grubs such as Japanese, Asiatic, June and Oriental Beetles, European Chafers and many more. Unlike other biological or chemical grub-control products, grubGONE! is an effective control of all life stages of grubs including the later 2nd and 3rd-instar forms and can therefore be used as a curative treatment for grub control as well as a preventative.


  • Novel & natural Bacillus thuringiensis galleriae (Btg) strain.
  • safe grub and beetle control organic bee safe pollinator friendlyMuch broader range of control: Japanese, Oriental, June and Asiatic Beetles; Chafers, Some types of Weevils, etc...
  • Can be used as a curative and preventative treatment for grubs!
  • Proven to not harm, bees, pollinators or other beneficial insects (such as parasitic wasps and beneficial nematodes that also kill grubs).
  • Works on all stages of the adult beetle and larval (grub) stages; including the 1st through 3rd instar grub stages.
  • Is effective in cooler temperatures than other biologicals.
  • 3 Year Shelf Life!

Why grubGONE! is So Far Superior to Milky Spore


grubGONE! has the broadest range of effectiveness against grubs in the non-synthetic market, and does it without harming beneficial insects!  Milky Spore is only effective against Japanese Beetle grubs; grubGONE! has a much broader spectrum of control against white grubs including not only Japanese Beetle grubs but also Asian and Oriental Beetle grubs as well as many chafers (such as the European) and borers:

Grub Gone

Even more, grubGONE! is also effective against adult beetles as well as all stages of grubs (1st through 3rd instar stages) - Milky Spore is not. You get a more complete protection with grubGONE!

grubGONE! is composed of the natural soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis galleriae (Btg) but more the stable protein the microbe makes that is toxic to only grubs.  It is therefore not dependent on the finicky conditions required for the bacterium to live like Milky Spore.  grubGONE! is stable for years and is effective at any temperature range grubs are feeding. Milky Spore has a limited temperature range to work. In soils in the northeastern United States and some other parts of the country, the Milky Spore bacteria do not survive in the soil for extended periods, contrary to claims otherwise (see references below).

  • For preventative treatments or standard infestations under 15 grubs per sq. ft.: apply 2 lbs. (32 oz.) of grubGONE! per 1,000 sq. ft. of turf grass, gardens or ornamental plants (equivalent to 87 lbs. of grubGONE!, or about 2x of 40 lbs. bags  per acre).
  • For curative treatments in late August through the fall or heavier infestations above 15 grubs per sq. ft.: Apply 3 lb. (49 oz) of grubGONE! per 1,000 sq. ft. of turf grass, gardens or ornamental plants.  
  • CLICK HERE for more detailed Spreader Settings.
  • 1 lb. of grubGONE! is 2.5 cups by volume.
  • For smaller applications, such as hand-spreading in gardens, 1 cup of grubGONE! weighs 6.5 ounces and would cover approximately 200 square feet. 

As an alternative when a liquid application is desiredbeetleGONE! (which contains the exact same active ingredient) can instead be used at a rate of 0.35 lbs. per 1,000 square feet (in 1 to 2 ounces or 1/2 a cup per gallon of water).  Efficacy and price are almost identical between grubGONE! (granular) and beetleGONE! (wettable powder or liquid application).


grubGONE! Application Notes

  • grubGONE! should be watered in (1/4 inch of water) within a few days of application or UV degradation can lead to lower product performance over time.
  • grubGONE! can be applied and is effective any time grubs are feeding, including spring.  grubGONE! can kill grubs in all 3 instar stages, as long as they ingest the product.
  • We do not suggest applying grubGONE! below 50°F, or any time grubs may not be feeding.  Check with your local experts to determine optimal temperatures. You can check your soil temperatures accurately and for free by CLICKING HERE and simply entering your zip code.

When is grubGONE! Applied?


Exact application timing will depend on your location and climate, but in general:

  • Optimal timing is late July or early August when beetle eggs are hatching and grubs start feeding (preventative treatment).  However, grubGONE! can also be applied through the fall as a curative treatment as well, a major advantage over even synthetic grub products as grubGONE! has both curative and preventative properties.
  • grubGONE! can be effectively applied in the spring as well as in the fall.  This is especially helpful if animals (moles, skunks, raccoons, birds, etc.) are causing turf damage as they feed on the grubs. A spring grub treatment will not necessarily preclude a second summer/fall treatment, however, as the adult beetles will lay eggs beginning in July and the cycle may begin again.

Service is Amazing! Hoping the grubGone works!

grubGone was recommended by local nurseries and the state and county cooperatives. GrowItNaturally had the best price and free shipping so I placed an order. They were amazing! They confirmed the order, kept me informed about shipping and delivery, and there was a handwritten thank you in the packing slip. I applied the product and I'm hoping it's effective. I'll most likely purchase another bag and reapply in Spring, just in case. The product is easy to use, and I'm a fan of GrowItNaturally for their customer service and pricing.

Far fewer Japanese beetles this year

I have been applying grub gone in spring and fall for three years. First application was fall 2020, after a summer with a huge population of Japanese beetles throughout our neighborhood. Last summer there were still significant numbers but this summer they weren’t much of a problem. We had a few. I know others in the neighborhood applied some sort of grub control but I don’t what they used. But I do know grub gone has been effective in my yard.

grubs are gone

Last years application not only removed grubs, but also greatly reduced slugs. I applied it again this year.

Richard Schwindt

Still mixed on effectiveness of grubGONNE, starting my 3rd application on turf, still have the grubs

Madeleine Green
Grubgone great, but needed two applications

Grubgone easy to apply. Killed majority of grubs but needed a 2nd application. I think that was because we had so many!
