Lawn Treatment for Grubs


By ProMatcher Staff



Do you have a grub problem?

If you notice sections of your grass suddenly turning brown and drying, you may have a grub problem on your hands.

Potential signs of a grub problem:

- Patches of dead grass

- Influx of small critters (skunks, birds, etc.) in your yard looking for food

- Grass becomes easy to pull up

What are grubs?

Grubs, or white grubs, are the larvae of beetles. They are relatively easy to identify by their dark-colored heads and white, “C-shaped” bodies. These grubs feed on the roots of your lawn and a grub infestation has the potential to kill your entire lawn.

When to Call the Pros

If you see any beetles, particularly Japanese beetles, in your yard, you may have a potential grub problem. If you see less than five grubs, there is no need to panic. If you see more than ten, you should enlist the services of a lawn treatment professional. It’s best to address the problem in the summer when the larvae are very young and still small. Grubs thrive in moist soil. As a result, be sure not to over-water your lawn. If they survive the summer, they will eventually become beetles and the life cycle will begin again. Preventative maintenance is likely to be more affordable than eliminating a serious infestation of mature grubs.
