Grub and surface insect treatments

Bugged by brown patches in your lawn? We know what to do.

Let’s face it, everyone’s yard has bugs. Most are beneficial, but a few bad actors can make life tough for your lawn.

Surface insects such as cinch bugs, sod webworms and even deer tics have different life cycles and vary in appearance depending on their stage of development. If any are present, the lawn should be treated to eradicate them.

Sub-surface insects such as grubs have been a big problem in our area. Hatched from eggs laid in the ground during summer, small white C-shaped grubs (the larvae of Japanese beetles, northern masked chafers, and June bugs) start feeding on roots in summer and fall, go deep when the weather turns cold, and emerge as adults the next season.

You won’t see the damage until the end of August or September, by which time they have eaten all the roots of your turf, which turns brown and can be rolled up like a carpet.

Protect your lawn by contacting us to check for surface insects and grubs. Our technicians are trained to identify the source of the problem, and parlay that knowledge into a program customized for your lawn.
