Jonathan Green’s Summer Survival Insect Control with Lawn Fertilizer is used to eliminate surface-feeding insects from lawns. Summer Survival can be used on the lawn and in landscape beds to kill and control over 15 surface-feeding insects including but not limited to: chinch bugs, billbugs, ticks, fleas, armyworms, ants, sod webworms, and centipedes.
This fertilizer also reduces insect entry into the home when it is applied within a 6 – 10 foot radius of the structure. The fertilizer in this product contains controlled release nitrogen which keeps grass greener longer and will never burn the lawn when used as directed. Please note that Summer Survival Insect Control does not kill grubs. Instead, use Jonathan Green Grub & Insect Control when grubs become a problem.
When to Apply:
- Insect control should be applied when insects first appear.
- Spread this product a day or two after mowing and when the lawn is dry.
- Best time to apply is spring, summer or early fall depending on the region.
- Apply the same day as seeding or sodding.
- Check that the spreader opening at the bottom of the hopper is closed.
- To select the proper spreader setting see the Spreader Settings section in the accordion below.
- Push the lever forward only when ready to spread.
- Apply fertilizer around the perimeter of the lawn to establish a turning area. Then run the spreader back and forth within the area outlined by your first perimeter application. Always allow an overlap to avoid gaps in coverage.
- There are restrictions concerning the use of Summer Survival Insect Control near bodies of water. Do not apply this product within 25 feet of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, or natural ponds, natural estuaries, and commercial fish ponds.
- Sweep any excess granules off of hard surfaces and back onto the lawn.
- Thoroughly irrigate the treated area after application for best results. About 1 ½ inches of water per week is sufficient between rainfall and irrigation but not to the point of run-off.
- Once watered, wait a day to mow the lawn allowing the product time to activate.

This product works great here in Florida.
Haven’t seen any results yet
Grass looks great
works well but have to spread a second load within 2 weeks.
My dream of achieving a respectable looking lawn has been dramatically been improved with the help of Jonathan Green products indeed. Keeps the lawn green longer sometimes I wonder… do I need to water or even apply the next scheduled application.
I am sold 100%. Can’t wait to add Jonathan green seeds this fall to get that lush carpet -like appearance next season.
It’s important to note that a thorough application of LazyMan™ Liquid Gold lawn aerator, dethatcher and conditioner is applied early spring to prepare my lawn to accept Jonathan Green products.
Make sure your soil ph is in a good range
We moved into our house about three years ago and the lawn was covered in brown patches as a result of grubs and most of the lawn that was still green was covered with crabgrass and dandelions. I have used mostly Lesco and Scotts products over the years and they’ve done pretty well, but I thought I would give Jonathan Green a chance on a recommendation from a coworker. I have done their first 3 steps (crabgrass control, weed/feed, summer stress/insect control) for the past three years and my lawn has proudly become one of the nicest in our neighborhood. In addition, I also aerate in September and overseed with Jonathan Green Ultra Black Beauty grass seed. Having tried numerous fertilizers brands over the years, Jonathan Green has become my favorite.
