Bayer also makes a pyrethrum-based (synthetic, I think) granular product for use on lawns for grubs and things and I have had good success with that.  The important part is to water in well and thoroughly.  I've quit using the "neo-nics".  Also some products meant for drenching can work as well.  Reading labels will help you decide which ones.  I was desperate enough once to drench an entire small greenhouse.  The best part was, it worked!
