Lawn Grub Control Services
When your lawn is attacked by a grub infestation, you will notice dead patches of grass that can be pulled up easily. Commonly referred to as May Beetles or June Bugs, grubs attack lawns, turf, floral plants, weeds, and vegetable plants.
Some are 1/2 to 5/8 inches long and reddish brown, while others are up to 1 inch long with cream-colored bodies and brown heads.
In spring and early summer, white grubs, with distinctive “C”-shaped larvae, pupate 3 to 6 inches deep in the soil. All adult grubs emerge in the spring, and when large numbers of grubs begin to feed, lawns begin to yellow and decompose. Severely damaged lawns can be “rolled up” like a carpet.
Although there are several ways to treat a grub problem yourself, a grub colony can destroy your entire lawn if untreated or incorrectly treated.
Ongoing Grub Control and Prevention
Best practices for ongoing grub control and prevention are included in our full service lawn care plans. We know what’s important in grub control for lawns. Mowing heights of 3 or more inches, sharpening mower blades frequently, and dedicated watering play important roles in minimizing grub damage. A regular fertilization program with proper blends of fertilizer being applied appropriately throughout the growing season also helps a healthy lawn withstand grub damage.
Moscarino Landscaping will perform an on-site visit, assess the health of your lawn, and determine a plan of action for permanent lawn grub control.
