One new product that should be available this year is Meridian. A check on websites this week indicates that it has a federal registration but not yet a state of Michigan registration.
The active ingredient is thiamethoxam, a nicotinoid insecticide in the same chemical family as Merit and Arena. Like Merit and Arena, Meridian will also give excellent grub control when applied in June, July or early August.
