How Merit 0.5 G Insecticide Works

Merit 0.5 G insecticide contains imidacloprid in a granular form to target turfpests in residential, commercial and recreational areas. This active ingredient starts to work upon ingestion and prevents the insect from feeding, causing the pest to die. Because Merit contains more of the active ingredient than similar insecticides, it provides more effective results and lasts for up to six weeks. With the right conditions and application rates, it can control white grub larvae for nearly four months.
