Grubs are beetle larvae living in your lawn. These pesky bugs are usually found in your yard during the late months of spring or early months of summer. Once a female beetle lays eggs, it generally takes about a month for the eggs to turn into hungry larvae. When the larvae hunt for food, they’ll go after the roots of your grass, creating dead patches in your yard.
It can be difficult to know if your lawn issues are grub-related or not. Grubs tend to eat away at grass in a concentrated area, creating a light brown patch. Another common side effect of grubs is the appearance of other creatures. Since grubs are in the diet of many small critters, animals like raccoons, possums, moles, and squirrels may show up in your yard to dig up the lawn and feed on these larvae.
When grubs strike your yard, they act fast. Luckily, there are a few ways you can get ahead of the risk of grubs ruining your yard:
- Hire Professional Assistance – Sometimes there’s only so much you can do without treating the lawn and soil these pests are living in. That’s why our team is here for you. If your yard has a history of dryness or brown patches, contact us and we can make sure the right preventative products are used on your grass.
- Fertilize – While mowing your lawn does help prevent grubs and other pests from moving in, fertilizing is an even better option. Once applied, the fertilizer can help grass maintain a healthy level of growth. In turn, this makes your yard an unattractive place for beetles to lay their eggs.
- Irrigate – Proper lawn irrigation is critical to keeping pests away. The right irrigation system and a hydrated yard can keep these bugs away.
