Here's A Way To Get Rid Of Grubs In Your Maryland Lawn For Good

May 14, 2020

Grubs can ruin your lawn. These small white, worm-like bugs, which are the larvae of beetles, feed on the roots of your grass and cause your grass to die. You can usually tell that you have a grub issue by pulling up on a section of grass that is near a dead patch. If the grass pulls up like carpet, it is likely that you have a grub infestation. You may also notice raccoons, birds, and other animals exploring your yard or digging at the ground when grubs are present. If you're having a problem with grubs, the best solution is to contact a lawn care professional. Here are a few reasons why.

The Right Treatment

While there are many things you can do to prevent a grub infestation, such as mowing, watering, and fertilizing your lawn, it is best to contact a professional when it comes to getting rid of them because a professional will use the right product to get the job done. There is nothing worse than spending a lot of time, money, and energy applying products, only to continue to have an unsightly lawn.

The Right Time Of Year

A professional knows when grub treatments need to be applied. If you put the right product on your lawn, you can still fail to achieve the results you're looking for if you apply it at the wrong time of year.

The Right Strategy

When a lawn care professional inspects your lawn to assess it for a grub application, they'll also consider other issues that may be present, such as pre-emergent crabgrass, broadleaf weeds, and proper pH balance in the soil. There are many factors that can lead to an unhealthy lawn. If you have a grub infestation, it is likely that you were dealing with these other factors before it took root. A professional can properly diagnose your lawn care problem and offer insight for correcting it. This will get your lawn back to the healthy state you want it to be in.

When Your Lawn Gets What It Needs

A healthy lawn is a grub-resistant lawn. At Royal Greens Professional Lawn Care, we don't just correct lawn care problems, we get your lawn back to a healthy state by providing core aeration, overseeding, slit and power seeding, soil building and more. We also use carbon-enriched organic fertilizer to give your soil what it needs to thrive. This provides your turfgrass with the right environment to grow strong and outcompete unwanted turfgrass and weeds. When beetles move through your new, healthy lawn, they won't want to lay their eggs in the soil because it won't provide a food-rich environment for their offspring. They're going to move on to someone else's lawn.
