Improve Your Lawn By Getting Rid of Grubs!

Grubs are not cute and cuddly. They are actually quite gross looking. These grubs will feast on your grass shoots, and most of them will also munch away at your lawn. If you have grubs in lawn, you will need to apply some grub control right away to get rid of it. The best type of grub control for lawns, is called Grub-x, or Ortho Max insect killer. You can also use a poison called Diazenon if you can find it for sale in your state. You want to put this down once or twice, depending on the season, to make sure that you get rid of all the insects in your lawn. If you have a lot of insects in your neighborhood, it is probably a good idea to put down insect killer at least once a year. It usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks to get rid of these pests using poison control.
How to Do White Grub Control?

White grub control for your lawn can be very easy. The first thing you need to do is recognize that you have a problem with grubs in your lawn. If your lawn has yellow spots, or grass tears out easily, you know that there are probably grubs in your lawn that are eating away at the root system or eating away at your grass. You can also try to dig around a little bit around the edges of the dead spots, to look for these grubs. Sometimes they will also be hiding under rocks, or other types of landscaping material during the day. Most grubs either live under the soil, or they are nocturnal which means that they will come out at night to feast upon your lawn. Some chemicals that you can use on your lawn to treat it, are Grub-X and Ortho Max grub killer. Both of these solutions should work just fine. The best time to apply grub killer, is towards the end of the spring or the beginning of the summer. This way you will have a chance to kill most of the lawn grubs before they do most of their damage.

What Are Different Kinds of Grubs You Can Get in Your Lawn?

There are several different kinds of grubs in lawn that can negatively impact your lawn. These are mostly lawn beetles and lawn flies. Before they turn into flies and beetles, they first grow into larva. When the larva is large, before it transforms into an adult, is when it does most of its damage to your lawn. The different types of grubs include larva from Crane flies, Japanese beetles, Asiatic beetles, and June beetles. Most of these grubs have chewing mouth parts that are very effective at eating the tender shoots on your grass, or else eating the roots under the lawn. For a lawn grub, grass is high in nitrogen, and energy. It is exactly what these insects need in order to thrive and multiply. These insects love to do most of their damage, when the soil is warm. This normally occurs during the late spring or summer. But it can also occur into the late fall. In most cases, the adults will also damage the grass, but they will not be as damaging as the larva.
