When it comes to protecting your lawn, preventative grub control is worth every penny! Grubs are the larvae of various types of beetles that live in the soil and feed on the roots of grasses and other plants. If grubs infest your lawn in the Louisville, KY, area, they can cause serious damage to your lawn including causing your grass to turn brown and die! Fortunately, preventative grub control treatments can help you stay ahead of a potential grub infestation. Preventative grub control treatments protect your lawn by getting rid of grub eggs or grubs that have recently hatched so they never get a chance to start feasting on the roots of your grass. In order for preventative grub control treatments to be effective, you must apply them before the grubs start to hatch. If you do miss out on preventative grub control treatments, you will have to use curative treatments to get rid of the grubs living in your lawn. And while curative treatments are helpful, they can’t reverse the damage that grubs have already caused. That means, in addition to curative treatments, you’ll have to pay for lawn care services to get your lawn back in good condition.
What is preventative grub control?
Preventative grub control is a service that is designed to prevent grubs from infesting your lawn and causing damage to your grass. This type of treatment is applied to your lawn and it will sink down into the soil and eliminate any grub eggs or grubs that have recently hatched. This way, grubs never get a chance to start feasting on the roots of your grass.
When should you apply preventative grub control?
When it comes to grub control, prevention is the best method. The best time to apply preventative grub control is in the late spring or early summer. That's because, during this time, the grubs will either still be in their eggs or have just hatched and are still too small to start causing damage to your grass. It's crucial to apply these treatments to your lawn before the grubs mature, as they are not effective against mature grubs.
What do you risk if you don't apply preventative grub control?
If you don’t get ahead of a grub infestation with preventative grub control treatments, you risk losing both money and the beauty of your lawn. Once the grubs have become larger and more established in the soil, they become more difficult to control, and the damage they cause can be more extensive. If you don’t get ahead of a grub infestation with preventative grub control treatments, you will then be in a position where you have to invest in a curative treatment to combat the large population of grubs feeding on the roots of your grass. Additionally, once you do rid your lawn of grubs, you will have to spend time and money to address the damage the grubs have caused and get your lawn back into good condition.
