What are grubs?

Lawn grubs, also referred to as white grubs, are the larvae of different types of scarab battles, like Japanese beetles and June bugs. They constantly feed on grass roots and other organic matter found in the soil. Grubs can cause entire sections of your grass to brown-over and die.

Depending on the soil moisture and temperature, grub eggs normally hatch two weeks after being laid during the mid to later summer. They will begin immediately eating at your lawn's roots in the fall before burrowing deep into the ground for the winter. Once the grubs wake up in the spring, their feeding frenzy begins again and will eat even more of your foliage after they become full-grown beetles.


What is the process for our grub control service?

Our company offers both preventative and post-damage grub control services. Being proactive and applying preventative treatments are the best way to protect your lawn from grub damage. It will kill the larvae before they have a chance to hatch. We'll spray around the perimeter of your property to create a barrier that will repel grubs from invading your lawn.

If it's too late to perform a pre-emergent application, we can still repair your lawn and use a post-emergent to help kill any existing grubs of all stages. Most grub damage occurs in late July to early August, so this period of time is when post-emergent treatments will be most effective.


How can you tell if your lawn is infested with white grubs?
