What are lawn grubs?

Lawn grubs are the larvae of Scarab beetles. They include species like the Japanese beetle and June bug, which feed on grass roots, robbing your lawn of vital nutrients and water absorption capabilities. 

In fact, as they chew through the root system, your once-vibrant grass begins to weaken. This can lead to unsightly brown patches, thinning areas, and potential turf loss. Left unchecked, the presence of lawn grubs can compromise the resilience of your entire lawn, making it susceptible to other stressors like drought, disease, and harsh weather conditions. 

What steps can you take towards lawn grub control?

Effective lawn grub control involves a multi-level approach to curbing their destructive influence and ensuring the vitality of your turf. 

Conduct regular inspections

First, conduct regular lawn inspections during late summer and early fall, when grub activity is at its peak. Then, look for signs like brown patches that easily detach from the soil. You may also want to look for increased bird activity as they feed on grubs. Finally, keep an eye out for sections of wilting or thinning grass. Proactive management and targeted control measures are essential to thwart the destructive impact of lawn grubs.

Consider eco-friendly solutions

If infestations are identified, consider applying biological controls. These may include nematodes, microscopic organisms that naturally target and eliminate lawn grubs without harming beneficial insects or plants.

Opt for chemical treatments

Consider employing chemical treatments formulated explicitly for lawn grub control for a more comprehensive strategy. Apply these treatments in late summer to early fall, when the grubs are closer to the soil surface and more susceptible to control measures. 

Maintain your lawn year-round

Integrating proper lawn maintenance, including regular mowing, adequate watering, and appropriate fertilization, will enhance your lawn’s resilience against grub damage, ensuring a healthier, greener expanse for years.
