The word “grub” even sounds distasteful, and it’s no surprise that the little lawn pests called grubs have become lawn enemy #1.
What it does
Feeding activity of grubs hits its peak in fall and spring. Spring is the perfect time for preventive treatment. Beetles, particularly European Chafer and Japanese Beetles, will be laying their eggs in your grass during the late summer and fall. The eggs will hatch as tiny grubs and disappear into the soil beneath your turf. Once there, they’ll quietly feed on the roots of your grass plants until cold weather. Next spring they’ll start feeding again, before forming a pupa from which new beetles will emerge.
The new generation lays eggs, and the problem goes on and on. Untreated, your lawn will start to suffer the visible damage grubs can inflict. Brown patches begin to form where the grass dies because roots have been chewed. The infestation can be widespread on a lawn, causing extensive damage to your property. The dead grass on grub-eaten areas eventually has to be removed, and those areas reseeded or sodded. Without care, even the replanted regions are susceptible to further damage from the next life cycle of grubs. If you have had grubs, or your neighbors have, there is an 80% chance or higher that they will lay eggs in your lawn areas.
You can check for grubs by grasping any brown patch in your hands and tugging. If the sod pulls up like carpeting, grubs have been at work. You might even see grubs on the underside of the turf if they’re finishing off their meal in that patch.
