  1. Hi
    Can you please tell me how long do I have to wait before I can spread fertiliser after acelapryn or can I spread to at same time and water both in.

    1. Hi Ricky, you can apply both Acelepryn GR and fertiliser at the same time on your lawn. Make sure to water in with 6mm of water.

  2. Hi, I have a scotts drop spreader, what number should I use?

    1. We would recommend four or five.

  3. Just laid a new lawn…how long to wait before applying? Or is it good to go in a few weeks once starting to take?

    1. Hi Paul,

      We would advise to wait 10-14 days before applying. Acelepryn GR is an Insecticide that gives residual protection from lawn grubs. It is environmentally friendly and won’t move into flowers, won’t harm native wildlife and won’t harm pets.

  4. I have a Scotts easy gree spreader .. will ACELEPRYN work with that spreader? If so, What setting? When should it be applied in Brisbane region? And finally, does it come in any larger sizes.. I hvae around 3000m2 under law (mix of buffalo & couch)..

    1. Hi Deb,
      You can use the Scott’s Easy Green Spreader with Acelepryn on setting 5. You can apply Acelepryn throughout the year, we recommend applying every 6 months.
      The 10kg bag is the largest size available for purchase.

  5. Do you water in after spraying acelyprin?
    How long after and how much watering?
    Thanking you.

    1. Hi John, Water in immediately after an application with as little as 3mm of irrigation.

  6. Hello, what setting do I use on my Scotts EasyGreen Rotary spreader?

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      You can use the Scott’s Easy Green Spreader with Acelepryn on setting 5.

  7. My neighbour has a second infestation of lawn grub. I have already applied Acelepryn to my lawn 3 months ago after an attack of lawn grub. Should I reapply another application of Acelepryn to protect my lawn.

    1. Hi Rose,

      If you applied at the normal rate (the rate listed on the bag), yes you will need to reapply. If you doubled the rate you will have 6 months protection. We trust this helps however, if you have any further questions please give our friendly team a call on 07 3273 1166 or email info@jimboombaturf.com.au

  8. If I have a heavy infestation of army worm and apply acelepryn will it kill the pest straight away or should I apply a product such as bifenthrin first to quickly knock them out and put down acelepryn after that for residual control

    1. Hi Travis,
      Yes – we would recommend spraying with a Bifenthrin product before you apply the Acelepryn, we currently have Grub Guard in stock on our online store here: https://www.jimboombaturf.com.au/products/grub-guard/

      Treating tips when spraying for army worm:
      1. Always spray in the late afternoon / evenings
      2. Apply Acelepryn 48 hours after applying the spray, this must be watered in with minimum 6mm of water
      3. Spray a second time 7 days after the first spray to break the lifecycle – Second application is essential
      4. Don’t spray if rain is likely as you will need to reapply the product
      5. After treatment give any brown patches a hit with fertiliser and water to help with the recovery process
      6. Going forward, apply Acelepryn every 3 / 6 months to ensure prevention of another infestation
      7. Always read the label and follow label rates before application

      We trust this will get you back on track.
