President, Dyna-Green
Mentor, Ohio

“Merit is still our grub control of choice.
Talstar or other generic bifenthrin products are the insecticide we use for both surface-feeding insects as well as our tree and shrub and perimeter pest treatments. It is low odor and has a wide spectrum label. It also has been very dependable with very few failures.

Jim Zylstra
Owner, Tuff Turf Molebusters
Byron Center, Mich.

“I prefer to use Merit for control of grubs. It has proven to be extremely reliable over many years and if there is ever a break through, Bayer stands behind its product.”

Terry Jungels
President, TLC Total Lawn Care
Indianapolis, Ind.

“One of the insecticides we like at TLC Total Lawn Care is Acelepyrn. It works for both surface-feeding insects like webworm and for grubs. It does not affect honeybees or earthworms when used properly. It also does not require watering in to be effective. We find Acelepyrn to be a safe, dual-target product that can be easily applied.”
