You can apply Spectracide Triazicide Insect Killer Once & Done! when you first start noticing insects or lawn damage from insects (now would be fine). It will last for several months but can be reapplied three to six times per year, depending on the use rate.

Question

Will this harm birds? Specifically baby ducks

I have four baby ducks that are ten days old. I need to move them into the yard, but the ants are terrible so we applied Triazicide today. I'm worried that they will eventually eat the poison and die. What is a reasonable time period to wait before letting them into treated areas?

Question

In what months should it be applied?

I live in upstate New York where spring typically comes later than in the southern states. The directions indicate that I should spread it during July, August, September and October for the vast majority of pests. and during May for billburgs. How important is it to follow those months to the letter or do I have some flexibility?

That's a guide. You can apply this product anytime you notice an infestation -- just make no more than three applications per year at the highest use rate or six applications per year at the lowest use rate. This is a common time to apply.

Question

Does this product have to be watered in for it to be activated?

I plan to resod my yard this spring and after pulling up what is left of the old turf. I was going to put this product down, then a layer of compost, and then the new sod. The label calls for the product to be watered in after spreading. I was wondering if the water was necessary to activate the insect killer or if the water was needed to drive the granules into the soil.

The granules will not kill either. You can use the ready-to-use liquid Triazicide Once & Done! formula to kill spiders and more than 130 other insect types, though. We make a new product for ground-nesting yellow jackets, Spectracide Carpenter Bee & Ground-Nesting Yellowjacket Killer Foaming Aerosol.

Actually, the granules will not completely dissolve -- you will still see part of the insecticide "carrier" on your lawn after the insecticide has been watered in and your lawn has dried. After you have followed the directions on the bag for applying, watering and allowing to dry, you and your pets can re-enter the treated area as usual.

Question

When should it be applied to kill grubs? Late July seems too late.

I pulled up some sod this week and found a fair number of big grubs just laying there, waiting for metamorphosis to get them to start feeding. I bought your product and now see it says in the instructions for grubs that I should wait until late July to apply. I am now confused as by then I would think the grubs would be mostly be gone because they would all be beetles and little would be left of my yard. Late July seems late for most of the US, perhaps maybe not Alaska. I live outside of Houston and so late July seems really late. So do you apply when they are dormant, like now? Do you apply when they are feeding and you see damage? I don't understand why I should wait so long if it "kills on contact".
