Got Grubs?

Posted by Lush Lawn on Jun 26, 2024 2:43:00 PM

It’s that time of year when grubs are becoming active and could already be feasting on your lawn!  These lawn- destroying insects that measure between 3/4" to 2" are in the soil, just under the grass, feeding on 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 have active grubs in your soil.  The second sign is if you start seeing skunks or other wildlife 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.  If so, you are getting the grub double-whammy with grubs attacking from below the surface and animals attacking from above the surface. 

Our trusted lawn technicians are busy laying down grub preventative treatments across Southeast Michigan at this time of year. If left untreated, these grubs can cause extensive damage to your lawn and compromise its overall health.  An infestation of grubs, the #1 killer of turfgrass in Michigan, can be a homeowner's worst nightmare. Application of grub preventer is most effective when timed to target the most vulnerable stages of the grub's lifecycle.
