Anybody have a good inexpensive source for milky spore? I'm sick of the Japanese beetles.

As noted, I need a source for milky spore that's not super expensive. Haven't found anything very affordable locally.

thanks

It is definitely expensive, but you can apply it at 50% of the label rates and have it be effective, which is what I did.

Depending on the size area you want to treat, this is a cheaper source for the milky spore:
