Hi Paul:

First of all, I love the information that you provide on your  website.  I have
spent quite a lot of time reading and rereading it.  Thank you for the all
natural solutions you provide.  Now for my question.  I have been
desperately trying to find BT locally and not having  much luck.  The one I have found is Bacillus  Thuringiensis Thuricide: Concentrate 8 oz
and I'm not sure if this is the right product because it never lists grubs on it.  Can you  please help me out here?  I need an exact name or the name of
a place that  I can buy it, even if I have to have it shipped.  I have a serious grub  problem at my new home and would love to take care of it naturally
given the  fact I have a dog and a child.

Again, thanks so much.

I have never dealt with grubs and I seem to remember that my BT suggestion didn't result in lots of BT availability.  But!  "BP" (Bacillus popilliae) is readilly available and effective!  This stuff is more comonly sold as "milky spore"


I just did a quick google and came up with this:  http://www.gardenguides.com/articles/grubs.htm

Hi Mary,

I too have been dealing with grubs and refuse to dump chemicals onto the lawn where my children play.  I am about to spray nematodes  which will kill the grubs and I am also using milky spore for future prevention.  If you have a serious grub problem milky spore won't help immediately, if you research it you'll get a better idea .  But apparantly nematodes should get it all under control within a few weeks by killing larvae and such.  I hope so!! I will let ya know!  I bought my nematodes and milky spore from dirtworks.net good stuff and informative too.

This website is awesome and I am embarking on quite a lawn project with much confidence thanks to Paul's helpful replies and advice.  Good Luck!
