Understanding is Half The Battle
It’s important to understand that everyone will have grubs in their lawn at some point in the season. These tiny creatures begin damaging lawns around late summer to the early fall months. These plump, white C-shaped worms may seem harmless but can become a problem when you get an abundance of them in a small area. Grubs feed on your lawns root system. Most grub damage starts to appear in the fall. Luckily, there are some signs you can look for to remedy a grub problem before too much damage is done.
Grubs are the larvae of various beetle species, including the Japanese beetle and the popular June Bug. In Mid-June, beetles start to emerge from the ground and feed on leaves, flowers, and other types of vegetation it finds. If you notice increased beetle activity around your home or in your landscaping, then you may be more susceptible to grub damage in your lawn later in the season. Beetles begin mating in late summer and lay their eggs underground to start the vicious cycle of grub infestation once again.
- Dead Grass
Grubs munch at the grass’s root and since the root system is the lawn’s lifeline, providing water and essential nutrients, your lawn cannot survive without it. Most often, grub damage can be easily spotted if your grass starts turning brown and doesn’t green up, despite all the watering or rain it receives. If these dead patches start showing up during the summer or early fall, especially if you regularly water your lawn, then the culprit could most likely be grubs.
- The Carpet-Roll Method
The last, but the most definite way of telling if you have grubs is the carpet-roll method. If you suspect you have a grub infestation, then gently lift the affected area. If the grass easily lifts and rolls in one piece, then your issue is probably caused by grubs. Grubs are classified as a below-ground insect and only consume grassroots while keeping the grass leaves, stems, and thatch intact, making the issue relatively simple to diagnose.
If you begin to experience any of the above signs throughout the summer, it’s best to take action as soon as you can. If your lawn is showing signs of grub damage, we also offer a curative grub application to stop any further damage. So, if you suspect a grub problem, contact Lawn Pride today to finally put a stop to the grub cycle once and for all!
