Grub Control

You’ve probably heard of grubs and know that they aren’t good for your lawn, but like most people know little to nothing about them. Perhaps you’ve noticed dead or struggling patches of your lawn and had someone remark that it might be grubs.

This vexing problem can cause your grass to seriously struggle, but LawnLab can help you bounce back and prevent future issues.

What Are Grubs?

If you see a grub, they look somewhat like a worm, only they’re white and shorter. When disturbed, they curl up into a “C” shape. Usually, they stay below the soil’s surface, so you only spot these creatures when digging in your lawn.
Grubs are actually the larva form of different beetles. They like to snack on grass roots, which makes them such a menace. Of course, these turn into adult beetles, which then procreate, leading to a new round of grubs in your lawn. As the beetle population increases, so does the grub problem.

Signs of a Grub Problem

Instead of just wondering if you have a grub problem, watch for the possible warning signs:
  • Armadillos, birds, skunks, and other animals are digging into your lawn
  • Sections of your lawn can be rolled or pulled back like a rug
  • Certain areas of your lawn feel spongy when you walk on them
  • Areas of the grass won’t green up, no matter how much you water and fertilize, even though surrounding sections do

Preventative Control

You might only have a slight grub problem, or you don’t have one but are concerned since your neighbors have been dealing with them. Instead of waiting until parts of your lawn start dying, take action now.
Our expert team will formulate a plan to keep the grubs out of your lawn. We can apply a spread that will act as a barrier against beetles and grubs, so you don’t need to worry about your lawn becoming a nesting ground for these pests.

Controlling an Existing Grub Problem

If your lawn is already showing the signs of being under attack by grubs, don’t fret. We have the tools and training to take your yard back, so you can enjoy lush, green, and full grass once more.

Waiting for the grubs to go away won’t work. In the cold weather, they dig deeper into the soil to survive the temperatures and simply emerge once more in the spring. It’s best to kill the grubs before they hatch each spring, although you can manage the problem later.

Contact LawnLab today and we’ll assess your grub problem, formulating a solution that will restore the beauty of your grass.
