Grub Control

Grubs are the larvae of beetles that feed on grassroots, causing damage to lawns and gardens. Adult beetles are typically present for about a month in the summer, serving as an early warning sign for potential egg-laying in nearby turf, leading to white grub infestations.

About Grub Control 

Grub control is an important part of an effective lawn care program and if left untreated can cause hundreds of dollars in repair bills. Grub control is also a cheap insurance application so we can guarantee that these pests won't do damage. 

Why My Lawn?

Grubs, the larval stage of various beetles, undergo a fascinating yet potentially problematic lifecycle. Emerging from eggs laid in soil, grubs feed voraciously on grassroots, disrupting the stability and health of lawns. As they mature, they transform into pupae before eventually emerging as adult beetles. While this process is crucial to ecosystem balance, an overabundance of grubs can lead to brown patches, wilting, and even death of grass, rendering lawns unsightly and vulnerable to further damage from pests and diseases. Monitoring and early intervention are key to mitigating their impact and preserving the lushness of your lawn.

Controlling Grubs In Your Lawn

Our single early spring application is a powerful low risk pesticide that is designed to interrupt the life cycle of white grubs, while leaving beneficial insects unharmed. This has been the leading product in all Rutgers University studies to have the highest level of control. By controlling the larvae, we prevent their feeding activity, safeguarding your lawn from their disruptive effects.

What to Expect

With our grub control services, you can expect peace of mind knowing that grubs won't be a nuisance in your lawn. While assessing grub presence beneath the soil can be challenging, certain signs like increased bird activity, raccoon or mole digging, indicate their presence. Our comprehensive approach not only targets existing grub populations but also prevents future infestations, ensuring the health and integrity of your lawn. By addressing these potential threats proactively, we safeguard your lawn from damage and maintain its lushness and vibrancy year-round.
