Meridian Insecticide is for season long control of African Black Beetle, Argentinian Scarab and Billbug in lawns. This product is effective by both having contact with the lawn pest, and by the lawn pest ingesting treated grass.
Effective in wet and dry soil conditions due to high bio-availability (function of solubility and soil binding). The flexible rate ranges for season long control of up to 6 months. Versatility for use on turf farms, sporting fields, parks, ovals, fairways and other turf situations with irregular irrigation.
How it Works
Meridian insecticide is a water dispersible granule that provides effective control on a wide variety of insects and grubs, killing through both contact and ingestion. Meridian is a rapidly absorbed into the plant making it rain-fast, after it has dried and allowing for residual control of pests that may attempt to feed on the foliage. Meridian provides residual control in turf grass and will control pests for an extended time. When applied direct to the soil, Meridian can be taken up by the roots of the plant providing systemic action.
