Grub control from TruGreen®

Early grub control is key to preventing major damage to your lawn. If you suspect a grub infestation, it’s important to take action before feeding becomes severe. White grubs, also referred to as grub worms, are the larvae of certain beetles, such as June beetles, Japanese beetles or European chafers. They are white or cream-coloured and have plump, fleshy, C-shaped bodies with brown or tan heads and six spiny legs. These grubs burrow into the soil to feed on grass roots. This causes destruction of the roots, leading to brown, wilted turf. A severe infestation can attract animals like raccoons and skunks; these animals will pull back the turf to feed on grubs, leading to even more lawn damage.

One initial symptom of a grub infestation is grass that wilts easily despite watering. If you’re noticing excessive wilting or turf that is soft or spongy to walk on, you may want to seek the advice of a lawn care specialist in order to determine the best plan of action. Rest assured the specialists at TruGreen are trained to identify the early signs of infestation and stop grubs in their tracks before they cause costly and unsightly damage to your lawn. Our timely, effective and all-natural treatment fights grubs at the root zone, where they live and feed.

Lawn care tips for preventing and controlling grub damage:
  • Treat: Using grub-control products properly and at the right time can be an extremely effective method for keeping pesky larvae from damaging your lawn. Enlist a TruGreen specialist for a professional and all-natural application. 
  • Fertilize: A healthy, nutrient-rich lawn can better tolerate grub feeding.
  • Grow: Consider overseeding in spring or fall, as thick lawns discourage grubs and adult beetles.
  • Water: Deep, infrequent watering encourages deep-rooted, thick turf.
  • Maintain: Regular maintenance helps keep your lawn strong and more resistant to damage. Contact TruGreen today to find out how our Healthy Lawn Analysis℠ can pinpoint your lawn’s specific needs.
