Fairfield Lawn Care Blog: Identity, Get Rid Of and Prevent Lawn Grubs
Lawn grubs are a whitish C-shaped larva of a beetle that are less than an inch long. The beetles typically lay their eggs during July / August in sunny areas of the lawn. Their larva lives in the soil eating on the roots of grass leaving it dry, brown and dead. Fairfield lawn care gurus understand this can be a nightmare for a well manicured lawn. The good news is Neverdousky Brothers provides expert Fairfield lawn care service, including lawn fertilization and grub control!
Eventually, grubs turn into adult beetles and come out of the soil to mate and lay eggs which hatch into more grubs. It seems to be a never-ending cycle, which is why it is important to control grub issues as soon as they are noticed! Looking for some help? We provide expert Fairfield lawn care services that help control the grub issue in your lawn before it becomes a major problem!
Lawn Grubs Attract other forms of wildlife!
Not only do lawn grubs damage the lawn, their presence also attracts unwelcome wildlife. These critters have no concept of “property lines” and can easily find their way into even a fenced in yard in the Fairfield area.
Animals such as raccoons, skunks and moles will feed on lawn grubs, creating a torn up lawn! They will strip away your grass or dig tunnels underneath in search for one of their favorite delicacies.
Don’t forget: Many of these animals including birds also dig your lawn to find earthworms. Always confirm that grubs are present before pursuing a lawn treatment.
Identifying Lawn Grubs
July and August are the times when lawn grub damage is usually visible from late summer and peaking in the early fall. If you have irregular patches of grass that are brown and dry, check to see if a patch easily peels away from the soil. If a patch of grass lifts up like a carpet with no roots holding it down, you likely have an infestation of lawn grubs.
In the spring: As your lawn begins to green up, look for brown patches that never turn green. These dead patches of grass may be grub damage from the previous fall.
