Grubs are serial lawn destroyers that you never want to see on your turf. When they are left to their own devices, they will chew through the roots of your grass and cause it to become unattached to the soil. Because of this, you'll want to schedule a curative grub control treatment as soon as you notice the first signs of their presence on your lawn. This grub control treatment is designed to target these root-munching pests and get rid of the infestation before they cause further damage.

If your lawn feels spongy when you walk on it, try lifting it up like a carpet. A lawn that lifts easily is a tell-tale sign of a grub infestation.

Help your lawn recover from grub damage by scheduling lawn care services.

After the grub infestation has been dealt with, it's time to tackle the damage that grubs left on your lawn. You'll need to schedule some lawn care services to help it recover from the stress and get it back on track to growing strong! Here are the lawn care services you need to nurse your lawn back to health:

  • Fertilization: Fertilizers provide much-needed nutrients that bolster your lawn's health and enhance its vibrant color. Fertilizing your lawn also helps build up its resilience so it can better resist insect infestations, diseases, and other environmental stressors!
  • Aeration: Aerating your lawn will improve its access to much-needed nutrients, water, air, and sunlight, which will help it recover quicker after a grub infestation. It will also encourage the development of stronger and deeper roots.

Schedule a preventative grub control treatment next year to prevent them from harming your lawn again.

Grubs are part of the life cycle of many beetles, which regularly mate and lay eggs. This means that another grub infestation on your lawn is not impossible! To prevent that from happening again, you'll want to schedule a preventative grub control treatment for next year. This treatment is designed to target newly hatched grubs when they are still defenseless, so you can eliminate them before they wreak havoc on your lawn.

Timing is important when applying this treatment, and you want to ensure it is applied before grubs have hatched. This will give the product enough time to sink into the soil and work its magic in preventing young grubs from damaging your lawn.

The best time to apply preventative grub control treatments is in early to mid-July.
