Lawn Grub Control Service
Grubs are the larval (immature) stage of various types of beetles. These beetles include the Japanese beetle, Northern Masked Chafer and June Beetle among several others. This larval stage of the various beetles can cause significant damage to desirable turfgrasses. The adult beetles can fly, so they have a pretty good range. They feed on trees and shrubs and in some cases can cause visible damage to plant material. The beetles then lay eggs in the lawn, that hatch and the grubs burrow down into the soil and feed on the grass plants roots. When the grub population reaches 10 – 12 or more per square foot, significant damage to the lawn can occur. Low populations of only 2 or 3 per square foot generally will not feed heavily enough to cause visible damage.
At ExperiGreen we offer guaranteed lawn grub control. We actually apply a “grub proofing” product in the late spring or early summer to control grubs as they are smaller and before they cause a lot of damage.
Why do you need a grub control service?
If you are paying a service to maintain your lawn and you have a cool season grass type found in the northern 1/2 of the country, you should seriously consider grub control service. Bluegrass, Ryegrass and Tall Fescue are common northern, cool season grasses that can be seriously damaged by grubs. Grubs are the larval stage of several types of beetles and feed on the roots of grass plants. At ExperiGreen, we recommend our guaranteed grub control service along with our standard program in most northern areas of the country.
Benefits Of Our Grub Control Services
Grub are simply larvae of beetles that when hatched and growing, consume the roots of grass plants. Having voracious appetites, grubs can decimate an entire area of your lawn, killing it by severing the roots which stops the uptake of water and nutrient. The result? Large brown patches of dead turf in your lawn.
Applying an environmentally-safe product that prevents the eggs from hatching is one step in an effective lawn grub control program. Once the grubs are present and active, a product is applied that reduces the number of active/feeding grubs.
What are the benefits?
Elimination of the grub population allows the lawn to return to a place where growth of healthy lawn is possible. Since grubs typically kill the grass plants in area in which they feed, replacing the grass through a seeding program is usually necessary. This should be followed up by a fertilization plan that strengthens the growing lawn.
Grub control is an important service and is recommended in most cases as part of an annual lawn care program. When you purchase a grub control service, you receive several benefits that include; peace of mind, knowing that your valuable investment is protected and you also know that if damage does occur, your lawn will be repaired in those damaged areas. When you purchase it early in the season, you don’t have to worry about the right timing on when to apply the products; that is your lawn service’s job. You also don’t have to worry about purchasing a do-it-yourself product and then applying it and storing the product.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are grubs? What do grubs eat?
Grubs are the larval (immature) stage of various types of beetles. These beetles include the Japanese Beetle, Northern Masked Chafer and June Beetle among several others. This larval stage of the various beetles can cause significant damage to desirable turfgrasses. The grub feeds below the surface, down in the root zone of the grass plants and feeds on the roots. At ExperiGreen, we offer a fully guaranteed grub control service.

What is the best time to treat for grubs?
When to treat for grubs is a common question asked by many homeowners. The best time to treat for grubs is in the late spring or early summer. The window to treat them effectively is fairly wide and is generally about 4 to 6 weeks long. The idea is to get the product down, get it watered in either via natural rainfall or irrigation, before the grubs get very large and control them at this stage. The larger they grow, the more they feed and the tougher they are to control.
How do I know if my lawn has grubs?
How do I know if I have grubs in my lawn? This is a very good question and it is often tough to answer until grub damage has occurred.

This is why grub control is recommended as a part of most lawn care programs in the northern part of the country. At ExperiGreen we offer guaranteed lawn grub control.
