What Are Grubs?

What Do Grubs Do?

Grubs are masters at eating the roots of your turf. Most grub eggs usually hatch around July. That means that from August to October, many of those grubs are happily feeding away at the roots of your lawn. Though you won’t see them as they do this damage from under the soil, you’ll notice dead patches in your grass during the late summer. That’s a sign that grubs could be a problem in your yard. Another indicator is an increase the number of animals tearing up your lawn. This could include birds, skunks, raccoons, moles, etc. More than likely, these animals are looking for grubs to eat in your soil.

How Can I Get Rid of Grubs?

Defeating grubs is best done with preventative treatment. That’s because immature grubs are the most susceptible to the grub prevention techniques used to get rid of them before they do the most damage. As a result, early to mid-summer is the ideal time to get rid of grubs.

While it won’t get rid of grubs, another way to protect your lawn is by caring for it well throughout the year. A healthy lawn with a dense root system will be more tolerant of a grub infestation and will be less likely to exhibit large dead patches when grubs do develop in the soil.
