USGA Summary Points:S. scarabaei is highly efective as a curative white grub control. Due to multiplication in infected grubs, even very low S. scarabaei rates can provide very less high control rates within one month. The best long-term effect of S. scarabaei is expected with low rates that allow some grubs to survive until spring allowing S. scarabaei an additional reproduction cycle before summer. S. scarabaei is highly effective in a range of typical turf soil types, but is probably most effective in lighter soils.
