What are Grubs?
White grubs can be serious lawn pests. Knowing when to control them saves you time and money. If your grass turns brown and pulls up easily in late spring to late summer it may not just be from drought or disease. If you notice a lot of critters such as skunks or raccoons tearing up your lawn, your grass may be infested with grubs. White grubs are the larvae of Japanese Beetles, June Beetles, or Masked Chafer Beetles. They cause damage to lawns by feeding on the roots of grass.
How to identify the damage!
Severe grub damage in a lawn appears as large, irregular sections of brown turf that detach from the soil without effort. Unlike turf damaged by drought or excessive fertilizer, the turf peels away like a carpet being rolled up, because most of the roots are gone. Most of the year, however, grubs are out of sight and out of mind. They feed on grass roots in your lawn and are usually noticed only when dead and damaged areas appear.
Protecting yourself from damage.
Turf One, has certified professional technicians that have years of experience dealing with grub problems in lawns. There is two ways to approach the issue of grub activity in the lawn. The first being contact killer insecticide, which is used when grubs are actively damaging the lawn. This will stop any further damage to the lawn and allow time for repair of the lawn. Second on the list would be the preventative grub control treatment, this applied during the months of June to August. With this treatment grubs are stopped from doing damage to the lawn from the first bite of the root system that they take. Turf One backs the treatment with a one year guarantee.
