Having a beautiful, lush and green lawn is the ultimate goal of many homeowners, but there are plenty of problems that can stand in the way. From pests to fertilizer, it can be a challenge to keep your grass healthy and strong. In the Northeast, one particular pest can wreak havoc on yards, making grub control an essential part of your lawn care practices.
Grubs in the Northeast can be the small larvae of several different insects, including the Japanese beetle, Asiatic garden beetle, northern masked chafer, European chafer or oriental beetle. The small white larvae with brown heads feed on the roots of your lawn, killing it from the bottom up. Over time, you may begin to notice brown patches that pull up easily. This is a sign that you may have grubs and that pest control is needed as soon as possible. Additionally, if you notice crows gathering on your lawn or an increase of mole activity, the animals may be feasting on the grubs, signaling that you have a problem.
Grub control is necessary if you want your lawn to improve and look better, but you may not want to use harsh chemicals for treatment. There are several organic options that you can utilize that may be better for your family and your landscaping. Ask about our natural perimeter pest control services.
