Dead Porina caterpillars in lawn
Not long after putting down the full 600 gram container [Kiwicare LawnPro Lawnguard] on the lawn, it rained and rained right through the night which was great. This morning you could see them [Porina] from the house there were so many. After using the Lawnpro, it has certainly made a huge impact on them, I have never seen the lawn so covered in them.

Pt 1 - I have just used LawnPro Lawnguard, last night on my lawn, and to my delight, there were 30+ of the little buggers (Porina Catepillars) "dealt with" :).

Pt 2 - Its now been 24hrs since application and destruction of the little buggers (50+ of them in, 24m2 section of my lawn).
