The Q&A Archives: grass seed and insect killer

Question: I put down grass seed about a week ago, do I have to wait in order to spread Tetraside insect killer (grub and other insects)or can I do it now

Answer: Your grass will be tender and susceptible to damage until it matures a little more. I'd wait until after the second mowing to apply anything to the lawn. By then the roots should be well established and the grub killer should not adversely affect it. You might also read the fine print on the product label for specific cautions about applying to new lawns. Good luck with your turf.
