Be on the Lookout for Signs of Damage.
June bug beetles lay their eggs in lawns during the months of June and July, and no lawn is immune. Once the larvae (grubs) hatch, they go to work feeding on the lawn’s root system. As feeding continues and the grubs grow larger, they can do major damage.
The best way to check for grubs is to peel back a small area of your turf. If you discover more than 6 to 8 grubs per square foot, you definitely have a problem. Other clues that you may have a grub problem include:
• Turf beginning to wilt and turn brown.
• Grass feels soft and spongy.
• Dead turf that can be rolled up easily (like a loose carpet).
If you suspect a grub problem on your lawn, give us a call right away. We’ll be happy to perform an inspection and recommend the appropriate control measures.
