Grubs are the larval stage of various types of beetles, including Japanese beetles, June bugs, and European chafers. These little critters can wreak havoc on your lawn if left unchecked. They feed on the roots of your grass, causing brown patches and dead spots. In Massachusetts, grubs can be a particularly pesky problem, especially during the summer months when the weather is warm and humid.
Luckily, Truly Lawn has a range of treatment options to help prevent grubs from damaging your lawn. One option is our preventative grub control treatment. This treatment is applied in the late spring or early summer before the grubs hatch. It works by creating a barrier that kills the grubs before they can start feeding on your grass roots. Another option is our curative grub control treatment. This treatment is applied later in the summer after the grubs have already hatched. It works by targeting the grubs that are already present in your lawn, effectively stopping them from causing any further damage.
Of course, prevention is always the best option, so it’s important to keep an eye out for signs of a potential grub infestation. If you notice brown patches or dead spots in your lawn, or if you see birds or other animals digging in your lawn, it’s possible that you have a grub problem. In that case, it’s important to call Truly Lawn right away so we can assess the situation and recommend the best treatment option.
