Grubs can do serious damage to a lawn, sometimes requiring total reconstruction to eliminate the pest problem and its effects. The best way to avoid grub damage is through prevention; by following proper cultural practices, keeping the lawn healthy, and using a grub and insect control product, you create an inhospitable environment in which grubs cannot thrive.
We use an EPA Low Risk registered product called Acelepryn to control grubs. Acelepryn offers season long protection against a variety of turf damaging grubs when applied correctly as well as protection against many other harmful insects such as sod webworms. Lastly, Acelepryn is not known to harm beneficial insects like honeybees.
Acelepryn has many benefits:
- Premium spray program for the environmentally-minded.
- No “chemical” smell
- Low risk of insects developing resistance to the product
- No harm to beneficial insects or honey bees.
- EPA Low Risk Registered
Organic grub and insect control is included in our Platinum Fertilizer Program and is a great addition to our Gold Fertilizer Program.
How do I know if I have grubs in my lawn?
Grubs are active during two different times of year, spring and the summer/early fall. You will notice areas of your lawn that were once green are now brown. You will also notice increased animal activity in your lawn, especially skunks. Skunks will dig seeking out grubs and do serious damage to your lawn while foraging for them.
How do I know if I need grub control?
If you have seen grubs in your lawn before and have had grub damage then you should have us treat your lawn.
