Grubs can be a nuisance to deal with, especially here in Nebraska. These lawn insects are the larvae of several kinds of beetles and become active in the summer, feasting on the roots of your grass. If these insects infest your lawn, they can cause significant damage to your grass. Fortunately, you can prevent these issues by investing in a preventative grub control treatment. As the name suggests, a preventative grub control treatment keeps grubs from infesting your lawn in the first place. If you skip out on this treatment, there's a possibility that they could infest your lawn, leaving you to deal with them and the damage they caused. Keep reading to find out more about preventative grub control treatments and why they're a worthwhile investment!
What are grubs, and how do they damage your lawn?
Grubs are the larvae of several different species of beetles. Adult beetles will lay their eggs in the soil, and when they hatch in the summer, grubs will start feasting on the roots of your grass. As they chew the roots of your grass, they will sever the connection between your grass blades and the roots, and your grass can start to turn brown and die. The longer grubs are infesting your lawn, the more damage they can cause, and if not treated in time, it's possible that they could damage your entire lawn!
How does preventative grub control work, and when does it need to be applied?
As the name suggests, preventative grub control treatments keep grubs from infesting your lawn in the first place, which in turn saves it from any grub-related damage. These treatments are usually sprayed over your entire turf to give full coverage. Then, it will seep into the soil and kill the grubs either before they’ve hatched or immediately after so they won't have a chance to feast on the roots of your grass. However, timing is of the essence with preventative treatments, as they need to be applied ahead of a certain point in the grub life cycle; the best time to do so is from mid-June to mid-August.
If you skip preventative grub control treatments, grubs could infest and damage your lawn.
If you skip out on preventative grub control treatments, you might end up with a serious grub infestation that you’ll have to deal with down the line. Even when you manage to get rid of a grub infestation, you'll still have to help your lawn recover afterward, which can be a real hassle. Not only that, but grubs typically come back year after year, so if you have an infestation one summer, they’ll probably come back again next year. It’s best to get ahead of grubs and prevent them from infesting your lawn before it’s too late!
