Protect your lawn at its roots
Grubs are common lawn pests that can occur in the healthiest lawns. Oftentimes, the thicker and greener your lawn is, the more likely it is to be infested. Grubs are not good for the soil, and can destroy a lawn over their life cycle. Grubs live underground and feed on the roots of grass, plants, and trees which can kill your lawn in large patches, if left unchecked.
White grubs are actually the adolescent form of the Japanese beetle, which are a serious pest and destroyer of many varieties of grasses, trees and shrubs. Grubs can cause two serious problems.
- By feeding on the roots of your lawn grubs can cause extensive turf damage which often times leads to replacement of the affected areas.
- Grubs can also attract moles to your yard.
If you start noticing brown straw-like blemishes develop or if mole tunnels are present, they could indicate your lawn has been invaded by grubs.
Fortunately, grubs are easily killed with proper treatments twice a year. Grubs are most active during the spring and fall, so getting down the insecticides at the right time is very important.
