When it comes down to it, it will be hard to win a fight when you are up against grubs. However, you are usually never just against grubs, there are ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, and many other pests that come along with them.
These pests are tiny but mighty, can do a significant amount of damage in a short time, and it is often too late when they are finally discovered. Learning what these grubs and other pests are and how to prevent them is the first step in ensuring your lawn has great pest control treatments!
They are tiny little white bugs that nest in your lawn and lay their eggs to continuously infest turf throughout the season. They are sometimes referred to as “white grubs” and are a species related to the Japanese Beetle. The main goal of grubs is to suck the nutrients straight from the roots of the lawn. Once this happens, your once healthy lawn has no chance to fight back because grubs are a myriad of pests that attract other critters and tear up your lawn.
You can stop grubs before they pop up in your yard as long as you are aware of them and are being as proactive as possible. Think of using a preventative method as a vaccine for your lawn. You wouldn’t skrimp on one for yourself, so you shouldn’t skimp on what medicines your turf needs either.
A great way to effectively prevent grubs from ruining your lawn is to ensure a treatment that contains carbaryl or trichlorfon is being used. While these can be powerful in creating a turf space that is finally grub free, it’s important to be safe and read up on safety precautions before taking an action like this one.
Although you may take extraordinary care of your lawn, it may not be enough. And if you get truly unlucky, you will only notice that you have a grub and pest control problem when it’s too late. At this point, you will see your grass being pulled up easily, dry spots no matter how attentive you are in watering your lawn, and dead grass that you just can’t seem to regrow no matter what extreme methods you might be trying.
