Don't Let Your Lawn Turn Into Grub For Grubs!
Don’t gamble with grubs. These critters, which are the larvae of Japanese beetles or European chafers, eat grass roots and create dead patches of lawn. You won’t notice the grub damage until the spring when those brown patches don’t green up like the rest of your property.
Signs You Might Have A Growing Grub Gathering
Grubs leave evidence of their destruction. Brown patches are just one indicator that you have grubs. Here are five other signs of a grub infestation:
- You have a lot of raccoon and skunk activity around those brown patches.
- You have many birds foraging for food in that area during the day.
- When you walk on these brown patches, it feels spongy, and you know that your irrigation line isn’t leaking.
- You can pull up the brown patches like pieces of carpet.
- You can count up to 10 or more white or gray C-shape larvae in one square foot of lawn.
Go After Those Grubs With All Wet Irrigation & Lighting
If you have a grub problem, you need us at All Wet Irrigation & Lighting. We have a four-step process for getting rid of grubs:
- One of our lawn care professionals will inspect your property for grub activity.
- Then, they will put down grub control treatment. We apply grub control right before the beetle eggs turn into larvae, which occurs in the spring or summer. Our grub control treatments are safe for lawns.
- We will instruct you on watering the grub control into the soil.
- We will reseed that area to replace the dead grass.
Your All Wet Irrigation & Lighting lawn care professional will also apply a grub preventative so that beetles don’t lay eggs on that area of your lawn again.
