Grub Control Treatments for Properties in & Around Louisville, KY & Jeffersonville, IN
We offer both preventative and curative grub control treatments.
Summer is a lovely time in the Northern Kentucky / Southern Indiana areas. However, warm weather also inevitably brings more pests and insects to deal with. At Lawn Works, we often see grubs making their homes in the soil of the landscapes around town. While they grab a bite (or two) on the roots of your lawn, your grass suffers the consequences.
Get ahead of the game this year with our preventative grub control treatments. We spray our pesticide before grubs even have the chance of nestling into your lawn. If it happens to be too late and you're already dealing with some grub damage on your property such as spongy turf or brown patches, don't worry - we help with that too! Our curative grub control will ensure that your lawn won't suffer any further from grub damage. We proudly serve the Louisville, KY and Jeffersonville, IN areas.
Protect Your Lawn from Grub Damage with Preventative Treatments
After years of insect control in the Louisville area, we have noticed that grubs are the #1 issue. That is why our preventative grub control treatments are so highly needed among our customers. The most important part of preventative treatments is to apply them early enough. When you sign up for this service, we will schedule your application between the months of May and June. This is when the adult beetles are laying their eggs that will eventually turn into hatched larvae, AKA grubs. So, applying preventative treatments during this time period is crucial to stop the eggs from hatching on your lawn and causing damage.
Curative Grub Control Treatments Will Stop Grubs in Their Tracks
Oh no! Did you accidentally wait too long for preventative treatments and now you're seeing grub damage on your lawn? Our team can help. Along with preventative treatments, we also offer curative treatments. The peak season for grubs in the Louisville, Kentucky and Jeffersonville, Indiana areas is around late July and early August. This is typically when you will see the most grubs throughout your lawn, as well as the most damage. Our crew will spray curative pesticides to control your grubs and then come up with a treatment plan to nurse your lawn back to health.
So - what does grub damage actually look like?
Signs that COULD be pointing to grub damage:
- Brown or yellow patches of grass - Because grubs feed on the roots of your grass, your grass no longer has access to the essential nutrients it needs to survive. This causes your blades to wilt and die.
- An increased amount of wildlife on your property - Grubs serve as food for a lot of different animals like raccoons, skunks, and moles. If you see more of these animals than usual on your lawn, they could be searching for their next meal.
Tell-tale signs that almost always mean grub damage:
- Spongy turf - With little to no roots left to anchor your grass down into your soil, your lawn will start to feel almost like a sponge when you walk on it.
- Grass that rolls up like a carpet - Another result of missing roots is loose grass. If you cut a section of lawn and gently pull up on your grass and it lifts and rolls up like a carpet, chances are grubs have already been through the area and eaten all the roots.
