Why Your Lawn Needs Preventative Grub Control

Grubs are one of the most damaging types of lawn pests. Grubs are the larval form of Japanese beetles. The Japanese beetles lay their eggs below the surface of your lawn, these eggs hatch into grub larvae in the summer, feed on your lawn’s roots, and lead to severe damage over time. Here is why your lawn needs preventative grub control.

How do I know that I have grubs?

  • Areas of your grass start to die off, leaving brown patches and wilting grass.
  • Your lawn feels unusually soft when you walk on it
  • Dug up areas of your yard. Your lawn is being dug up by animals trying to get at the grubs to eat them. Animals like skunks, raccoons, moles, and birds will tear up your lawn to feed on grubs.
  • You see grubs under the surface of your garden when you pull back a patch of your lawn. If there are more than five grubs in a square foot of turf, you have a grub problem that needs a treatment plan.

Grub treatments are applied sometime between late May and mid-July when grubs are active. Our Preventive Grub Control application uses an insecticide that works to immediately reduce, if not completely eliminate, the population of grubs on the lawn.

How do I prevent grubs?

Tee Time’s Preventive Grub Program offers homeowners a quick and highly effective solution to eliminating grubs. A healthy lawn also acts as its own defense system, providing natural pest control. Proper yard care can help prevent grubs. 

Some of the best practices we recommend are:

  • Keeping grass mowed high – at least 3″ or more – means that your lawn will have a deeper, healthier root system that can stand more sub-surface insect feeding.
  • Over-seeding bare areas in the spring or fall (preferred).
