Grub Control in Fayetteville
Throughout the year, your property is susceptible to insects that lurk beneath the surface waiting to feed on the roots of your grass. You may not be aware of them until your lawn is already injured. However, with the help of our trusted lawn care technicians, the most common damaging pests (like grubs, turf caterpillars, and more) can be controlled before it is too late. To control insects in your yard, we use a different approach that is effective against threatening insects, while also being sensitive to beneficial insects. As part of our unique service, we use Acelepryn® insecticide that provides the best season-long protection against grubs, turf caterpillars and more while also being gentle on the environment and safeguarding the biodiversity surrounding your lawn.
DID YOU KNOW?
IF YOUR LAWN HAD GRUB DAMAGE LAST YEAR, IT HAS AN 80% CHANCE OF BEING DAMAGED BY GRUBS AGAIN.
WHAT ARE GRUB WORMS?
If you have ever come across a lawn grub, your first thought was probably “ew”. What most people don’t know is that white grubs are actually the larvae of an immature form of various beetles, including Japanese beetles and June bugs. You typically won’t come across white grubs because they spend most of their time underground, feasting on the roots of your grass and organic matter, causing patches of your lawn to die.
Grub damage usually starts out pretty thin and may be difficult to notice. However, what starts as a small problem can quickly turn into a grub infestation. This will quickly lead to irregular sections of dead grass and other issues that affect the health and appearance of your lawn. As if grub damage isn’t already enough, a grub-infested lawn will attract skunks, moles, raccoons, birds, and other wildlife that enjoy a nice, juicy grub when they are hungry.
WHAT DOES GRUB DAMAGE LOOK LIKE?
- Yellowing grass often pulls up easily because the roots are not anchored.
- Scattered, irregular dead spots.
- Dry brown spots look similar to drought damage, fertilizer burn or disease.
