Grub Worm Treatment...Safely & Organically
We are excited about a new grub product we are using this season. Usually, it's challenging to apply organic grub control at the right time, but our new product works through all three stages of grub development, which means exact timing is not the issue it used to be, and because it works on grubs in their more mature stages, it's both a curative and a preventative treatment. That's a good thing.
Our treatment is a naturally occurring bacteria that works by coming into contact with the grub egg, larva or pupa. For our treatment to work effectively, you need to water your lawn to ensure our product reaches the layer of soil where the pests live. Generally, this is accomplished with a quarter to a half inch of watering over the turf.
And, with everything we do, our treatment is 100% safe. Our organic, all-natural grub prevention package effectively kills grubs without damaging beneficial insects or pollinators. It can be used on the entire landscape – turf and ornamentals – to protect it from grubs and other destructive beetle pests, such as Japanese, Asiatic, June and Oriental Beetles.
How do I know if I've got grubs?
Just so you know, having a few grubs is perfectly normal. But, having a major grub issue can cause damage to your lawn. In our area, grubs are becoming more problematic because of our warmer winters, making grub treatments increasingly important.
Grubs feed on the roots of grasses, so your lawn will show wilting and browning after the grubs have hatched and become active. Not sure if your brown or wilted grass is from grubs? It's pretty easy to check. Just lift a piece of your turf. If grubs are the culprit, the dead patch will roll up like a carpet, or you'll be able to pull up the grass and see that it has no roots. You'll typically see irregularly shaped dead patches in your well-irrigated lawn in late summer or early fall.
Chances are, skunks and raccoons will know you have grubs before you do and can cause even more damage by digging to feed on the grubs. If you see signs of digging, give us a call right away.
