How to Prevent and Deal with Lawn Grubs

Lawn grubs eat a tremendous amount of plant material in order to grow into adulthood. While frequent feeding helps the small larvae develop, their insatiable hunger can cause a lot of damage to your lawn. At Arbor-Nomics, we provide high quality lawn care services for property owners in Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding metro area neighborhoods. We understand how important it is for you to keep your grass healthy, and that is why we are here to help you conquer your lawn grub problems.

Identifying Lawn Grubs
The C-shaped white larvae known commonly as Lawn Grubs can be the offspring of a variety of adult insects. It could be young Japanese Beetles, or baby European Chafers, also known as “June Bugs”, or several other beetle species. Locating grubs can be difficult since they live underground. Yet, the damage they do to your lawn can often be a telltale sign of trouble. Look for irregular patches of dry, wilted or brown grass. You may also notice a sudden rise in the presence of crows, raccoons or other animals digging through your lawn to make the larvae their next breakfast.

How to Get Rid of Lawn Grubs
Grubs can be difficult to remove from your lawn once they have arrived. The presence of some grubs is to be expected. Those who have less than 5 grubs per square foot do not have to be overly concerned about the health of their grass. However, if you notice a dense population of grubs on your lawn, then a treatment plan can help you control them long term. These insects lay hundreds of eggs in a single season and can proliferate quickly. For this reason, it is best to rely on an integrated grub worm management program. A Certified Landscape Specialist will have the education, training and specialized equipment needed to properly perform grub and army worm prevention services. Our Silver Plus, Gold Plus and Platinum programs offer this service at no extra charge during the summer.

Fixing Grub Damage
If grubs fed on grass blades, then recovery would be fast. Unfortunately, these underground critters rely on the delicate roots of your grass to survive. Severely damaged lawns may need to undergo extensive care before it can be revived. The specialists at Arbor-Nomics will work one on one to assess the damage done by your grub population and will create a customized solution according to your unique needs.
