Grub control services for residential, commercial, and HOA lawns in Woodstock, Roswell, and nearby areas of north Georgia.
Ensure your lawn stays healthy and damage-free with regular grub control.
Let’s face it—grubs are unsightly, and unfortunately, also common Gerogia lawn pests. Grubs, or beetle larvae, can take over a lawn and cause serious damage if you don’t treat the infestation quickly. These creatures destroy the root system of grass and require regular treatment to control and manage.
The lawn care professionals at TurfXpert take preventative measures to control outbreaks but can also treat existing grub problems for properties in Woodstock, Roswell, Alpharetta, and nearby areas of Georgia.
Grubs can easily destroy your lawn.
White grubs are underground creatures that resemble fat worms, they are actually beetle larvae. Beetles like Japanese beetles and European chafers lay their eggs in the soil and hatch in warmer weather, usually sometime during the summer.
When grubs hatch, the first thing they do is check their surroundings for food, and a grub’s favorite food source is the root system of your lawn. If left unmanaged, they can eat their way through your yard.
Signs of a grub infestation.
It’s possible you’ve seen signs of a grub infestation without ever having laid eyes on the insects. Some common signs that you have a grub problem include:
- Grass has developed brown patches
- Grass ground feels spongy
- You can roll up dead grass like a carpet
If you remove some of the dead grass, you may get your first grub sighting. They tend to stick to the soil, but where there is one grub there are sure to be others. You may also notice more wildlife in your yard. Grubs make a good meal for many animals that live in north Georgia, including possums, raccoons, and skunks.
These animals can actually compound the problem—the grubs destroy the root system, and animals dig and unearth soil to dig for the grubs.
Grub treatment starts whenever you’re ready.While you should definitely schedule an appointment as soon as you see grubs or symptoms of grub damage (post-emergent treatment), you can also schedule preventative treatments.
Preventative treatment is best done just before grubs hatch and will also affect newly hatched grubs. Post-emergent treatment is best during other stages of the grub’s life cycle and can be applied in late summer through to the following spring.
Our lawn care experts understand the seasonal grub cycle and know which treatments to apply at the different stages. We’re ready to get started whenever you are.
