White Grubs show up in well-kept lawns for one reason. To fatten themselves up by eating the roots of your grass. Grubs feed underground and out of sight. They don’t really care if your grass dies in the process. But we do. Let us prevent (or stop) these unwelcome dinner guests before they cause severe damage and turf loss on your property.
What are lawn grubs?
Lawn grubs, also known as white grubs, are the larval stage of several species of beetles that live in the root zones of lawns. Difficult to detect and harder still to control, these insects can cause considerable damage to your lawn before you even know they’re there. It only takes a few short weeks for a grub infested lawn to be completely destroyed. It is important to work proactively to prevent grubs from infesting your lawn.
What are common signs of grubs?
Lawn damage from grubs can often be mistaken for other forms of damage. It is important to know what you are dealing with.
Some signs of grub damage to a lawn include:
Brown patches in the spring
Randomly shaped dead patches in late summer and fall
Your lawn feels spongy
The grass is easy to lift up or peel off
Damage from skunks, raccoons, or birds
Sudden death of plants or flowers
What will our preventative grub control do for your lawn?
The most effective way to get rid of grubs is to prevent them in the first place. Preventative grub control treatment will provide season long control. If a preventative treatment has not been applied and grubs become active they must be treated with a curative grub control product and this is much less effective in preventing damage because the grubs will have already begun to eat away at the turfgrass roots.
Preventive Grub Treatment Helps Avoid Damage. The word “grub” even sounds distasteful and it’s no surprise that the little lawn pests called grubs have become lawn enemy #1.
THERE IS A GOOD SOLUTION!
Having your lawn treated in the spring with an application designed to prevent grubs from hatching and beginning to feast on your grass roots is a good idea. The treatment stops grubs before feeding causes serious damage. You’re protected lawn is better able to thrive, which means it can fend off other pests and unwanted weeds more easily. If you think your lawn may already have grub problems, a preventative treatment is in order. Having your lawn treated this year is advised. However timing is important………..
