Grub Control Services
Where grub activity is expected and to protect lawns against damage, grub control is applied as a granular material in late spring before grub eggs hatch and feed on plant roots. When eggs hatch, new grubs are killed by the control material. Where local infestations of lawn damaging insects are common, homeowners are encouraged to schedule our Premier program, which includes grub control and surface insect control in most locations.
Grubs are the larval stage of several different kinds of beetles. Adult beetles lay their eggs in the lawn where they hatch and start feeding on the grass roots. Grubs are under the surface of the lawn and can do significant damage to the root system and the lawn itself. Where grub activity is expected or to protect lawns against damage, grub control is applied as a granular material in late spring before grub eggs hatch and feed on plant roots. When eggs hatch, new grubs are killed by the control material. Where local infestations of lawn damaging insects are common, homeowners are encouraged to schedule our Premier program, which includes targeted surface insect and grub control in most locations.
Patches of your lawn contain dead or dying turf, especially visible during the spring (April and May) and late summer or fall (September and October). The affected areas are often spongy, which allows the sod to be rolled back easily like a piece of carpet.
Upon closer examination, you discover live grubs under the affected areas in your lawn. These grubs are dirty white, soft bodied, with a brown head and six well-developed legs.
The grubs have eaten the roots of the grass in the affected areas, causing the grass plants to die or to be in the process of dying.
As with weeds, there are both preventative and curative grub treatment measures.
ExperiGreen Lawn Care uses a very effective application to prevent damaging grub worms from ever invading your lawn. This product is typically applied during the late spring, and it is effective for the entire season.
Once grubs are discovered in your lawn, ExperiGreen Lawn Care uses a specialized product to gain control of the grub population in your lawn.
Once the grub worm treatment is done, and once damage decreases, your lawn may need some overseeding to help replace damaged turf.
When combined with a lawn care program that includes lawn fertilization, lawn aeration and weed control, your grub-free and weed-free lawn will become healthy again. Patches of dead turf will be filled in with new grass as the grass grows into areas left vacant from grub damage.
The result will be a lush, green, healthy, grub-free, weed-free and drought-resistant lawn that will showcase your home or business.
