Lawn Care: Lawn Grub Insect Control in Lincoln
This preventative step only needs to be applied once per year and saves time, headaches, and money.
What are grubs?
White grubs generally come from the larvae of the June bug, which Lincoln has a large population of. The June bugs mate and lay their eggs in the soil, where these critters hatch and begin eating grass roots. Slowly but surely, large brown spots begin developing in the yard. Not only do the grubs destroy your lawn, but they also attract other animals that eat the grubs in your lawn. No matter what you do, lawn grubs are going to find your lawn. Small quantities are fine and of no concern. However a large infestation can occur without warning signs, so it’s best to prevent them to begin with. It’s much more cost effective to prevent lawn grubs than to reseed or resod your lawn to repair the damage full grown lawn grubs can cause.
Grub Control is often an add-on service to our Premium Fertilization and Weed Control Program and is applied during Round 3 of that program. The product helps ensure grub eggs die as soon as they hatch, so your lawn stays healthy and green. After the application, the technician will leave you instructions for watering to help you get the best results.
What if I already have grubs?
Although it is cheaper and easier to simply prevent lawn grubs, don’t lose hope if your lawn already has grubs. The best warning sign is a large dead spot developing in the lawn. The grass will peel away like a roll of carpet and you should be able to see white grubs in the soil. In the event that you do find yourself with a grub problem, they can still be eradicated. We also offer repairing services like overseeding and sodding of the area that the grubs destroyed.
