Yates® Lawn Grub and Porina Kill + Protect delivers excellent preventative control against a large range of lawn pests commonly found in New Zealand. For best results, apply early in the season at the appearance of overwintering adult pests.
The long residual performance Yates® Lawn Grub and Porina Kill + Protect will provide up to 6 months protection at the higher application rates. Control of pest outbreaks later in the season can also be achieved using the higher application rates.
Yates® Lawn Grub and Porina Kill + Protect is a ready to use spreadable insecticide granule for application to lawn or ornamental plants.
1. Weigh out the amount required to treat the measured area.
2. Fill spreader with granules.
3. Evenly apply granules over the lawn area.
4. Application may be made in one pass, or multiple passes in different directions. When applying in multiple directions, separate the weighed out granules by the number of directions to be applied before treating each direction.
Measure the lawn area before application to determine size then weigh the amount of granules to apply over the area. Evenly spread granules over lawn.
Before application remove any black plastic or other weed barrier material that is impermeable to water. Apply using a hand shaker or treat by hand
For beetle larvae (Black beetle, Argentine scarab, Argentine stem weevil and Billbug): Lightly water in immediately after application for optimal control
When treating caterpillars: Delay watering and mowing for 24 hours after application.
The use of a garden spreader or professional spreader that can be calibrated for even output is recommended for optimal product performance. Use a drop type, rotary type or hand held spreader.
Hand or hand shaker application may be used to evenly broadcast granules over the ornamental plants area. It is recommended to use gloves when applying by hand.
Following application, thoroughly rinse spreader and other application equipment with clean water.
Lawns and turfgrass
75g per 10m2
750g per 100m2
For best results apply when first observed. Typically from spring (September) onwards.

Beetle Larvae (white grubs) including:
75g - 150g per 10m2
750g - 1.5kg per 100m2
Use the higher rate when longer protection periods are required or for curative control of pest outbreaks later in the season
For best results apply before or at peak egg hatch as below:
African Black Beetle and Argentine Scarab Apply early season (mid-September), or late season (mid-December) onwards when less sensitive mid-instar grubs are present
Argentine Stem Weevil and Billbug Larvae Apply early season when overwintering adults are first observed (typically mid-September) or mid-December in cases of high pest pressure
Crane Fly Larvae/Leather Jackets Apply typically February to April
New Zealand Grass Grub Apply typically January to March

750g Shaker Bottle, 2.5kg Pack
Contains 2g/kg Chlorantraniliprole in the form of a dry granule
DO NOT GRAZE TREATED TURF/LAWN, OR FEED TURF/LAWN CLIPPINGS FROM ANY TREATED AREA TO POULTRY OR LIVESTOCK.
DO NOT apply more than 2 applications per year. The maximum single application rate is 1.5kg/100m2 (0.30kg chlorantraniliprole/ha). The maximum total cumulative annual rate is 2.8kg/100m2 (0.56kg chlorantraniliprole/ha). Only apply by ground-based methods.
DO NOT apply on or around food or animal crops. GHS Classification: Hazardous to the aquatic environment Category 3. DO NOT apply into or onto water. Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects. DO NOT allow chemical containers or granules to get into drains, sewers, streams or ponds.
Using the product where soils are absorbent, especially where water level is shallow, may result in the substance leaching into ground-water. For best results and sufficient absorption into soil, DO NOT apply when the soil is saturated with water. This substance is harmful to some beneficial insects - particularly some foliage dwelling predators that may be used in Integrated Pest Management. Due to the persistent nature of chlorantraniliprole in soil, this product is expected to accumulate over successive years following repeated use.
Store in the closed original container in a cool, dry place, away from foodstuffs and out of the reach of children. Avoid contamination of any water supply with chemical or empty container. Dispose of empty container by wrapping in paper, placing in a plastic bag and putting in rubbish. DO NOT reuse this container for any other purpose.
DO NOT eat, drink or smoke while using. DO NOT breathe dust. Avoid contact with eyes. Wear chemical resistant gloves, protective clothing and eye protection. Remove protective clothing and wash hands and face thoroughly after handling.
First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre.
