It’s that time of year where grubs are becoming active and could already be feasting on your lawn right now! The weather may not seem warm enough, but these bugs are nice and warm in the soil, just under the grass, feeding on the roots for nutrients to grow.
There are a few quick things to look for if you are unsure about whether or not you are having a grub control issue. First, you will start seeing patches appearing throughout your lawn, causing an uneven appearance. This could be a sign that you are having active grubs in your soil. The second sign is if you start seeing skunks returning to your property. Skunks are known as memory feeders, so they tend to return to where they “remember” where they found food, such as grubs. If you start seeing them frequent your property, this could be an indicator that you may be having grub activity on your lawn.
Just this week, our trusted field technicians uncovered active grubs in Brighton, Plymouth, and Rochester Hills, so it is starting and if left untreated, these grubs can cause extensive damage to your lawn and compromise the overall health.
