Grub Control

These Pests Will Grub You The Wrong Way!

Grubs are an invasive species of pests that feed on your grass roots just beneath the surface of the soil. They will damage or completely destroy the roots, reducing your lawn’s ability to absorb water and nutrients. This will reduce their ability to withstand weather stresses like extreme heat or dryness.

Damage from grubs can be very extensive and costly, so catching them at the first sign of damage is key. Grubs will not only cause the grass to wilt and die but they will also attract animals like birds, skunks or raccoons to tear up your lawn looking for the grubs as a food source.

Why Timing Is Everything.

The grub life cycle is especially important when managing the infestation. In June-July adult beetles will lay eggs, that hatch into larvae (grubs) in August. In their early stages of life, the grub are closer to the surface of the soil while they feed, making them easiest to eliminate. By end of September the cooler weather may have already encouraged grubs to migrate downward, where treatment methods won’t reach them until they surface again in May of the following year for root feeding.
