Lawn Pest Control FAQ
Larvae of several varieties of beetles found in our area can be highly destructive to lawns.
Grubs eat the underlying root system. Grub damage will start to appear in late summer into early fall. Areas on the lawn may turn brown or seem to lose color.
If you observe damages to your lawn, you will need a curative grub control treatment and will most likely need to re-seed those damaged areas.
If you manage to identify a few stray grubs in the spring, don’t worry; it is doubtful that they will damage your lawn during this time of year.
However, it is crucial to ensure that you have preventive grub & insect control treatment completed in the late spring or early summer (June/July). It will act to prevent potential damage later in the year.
Chinch Bugs, billbugs, sod webworms, and armyworms are some of the most common lawn pests that can damage your lawn.
Therefore, our specialists can identify which of these insects are destroying your lawn. After our initial assessment, we will offer our recommendations to cure the current condition and implement preventative treatments to minimize the chance of the issue.
These insects, called “surface-feeding insects,” feed above ground unlike grubs, who feed on the roots of your grass plants.
Surface-feeding insects will often be found in the thatch layer of the grass in late spring through early fall. Infected areas of grass will start to lose color and can sometimes even look chewed-off or wilted. Surface insects often start in a healthy lawn area and keep spreading to healthy areas once the damage is done to their first location.
- Chinch bugs are tiny, about 1/8″ in size, and may appear to hop from blade to blade.
- Sod webworms are tiny larvae, about 1/2″ long, and often create small holes in the soil and silk-lined tunnels.
- Billbug larvae will appear almost like a small grub, only at around 3/8″ in length, and will not have legs, similar to a grub.
- Armyworms are small greenish-brown worms, about 1” long, and can be seen on the grass blades
