Re: CULT: Borer control-a new twist


The person who said 2 x 5 is correct and that is pretty much a
guess/estimate.  I put a square on my drive and used a hand  grass seed
spreader until I was happy with the outcome.  Then I did all the beds last
fall in November.  I have redone all the beds now, although the material
should last 6 months.

It is about $18 for 14 pounds at Wal Mart and Ace Hardware.  Remember, it
must be the Bayer product and it must be without fertilizer.
