    Hi Folks, I ended up calling St. Gabriel Labs 800-801-0061 and spoke with Nancy - they do sell the milky spore directly to home owners here is the pricing she gave me:
    10K Sqf Application $89.95 + 11.95 S& H
    2500KSqf App $29.95 + 6.95 S & H
    If you go to their website, you can send in a request for a tech to come out and treat your lawn, but you will be on a wait list until multiple homes sign up for the same application, or you can purchase the product directly (at a much lower cost) www.milkyspore.com

    If anyone on Ridgeway or Sunstone need some of the Milk Spore, just send me a quick note in the next few days.

    Go to Home Depot or Lowe's and buy it. Save yourself the shipping cost.
    The powder is much more effective than the granulated type.

    They were both out of the product and my landscaping is a munching factory for those little buggers...didn't want to wait until next week...by then I may not have any leaves left for them to much on. But thank you for the heads up, I'll remember it for next year:p

    Milky Spore is a long-term solution. Whether you put it out tomorrow or in 3 weeks won't make a difference. Just try to have it out by late July/early August when the grubs start feeding heavily.
