SavATree Grub Management

Controlling Atlanta’s Lawn Insects

Insects and grub worms can undermine even the healthiest of Atlanta landscapes. As if grub and insect damage weren’t enough, they can attract moles, which can wreak havoc on your lawn.

At SavATree, our professional lawn care experts can identify and apply insect and grub worm treatment if an infestation already exists, but they also will work to prevent this problem by developing a comprehensive lawn care program that includes grub management.

The key to quality insect management is to spot unwanted insect populations early. Your lawn care specialist may recommend a program that integrates both curative treatments and preventive measures in order to maintain maximum insect and grub management in your lawn and garden.

Of course, dealing with common lawn insects and grubs requires a lot of knowledge and experience. Our lawn cares specialists have the expertise necessary to help you develop a carefully timed and targeted insect management program.

Common Georgia Insects

White grubs, chinch bugs, armyworms, and spittlebugs typically cause the most damage to lawns—and they’re all found in Georgia.

White Grub

White Grubs

  • The most widespread and destructive pests in the Eastern United States. They damage grass by chewing the roots. The only solution is often a professional grub management service.

Chinch Bugs

  • Also prevalent in the Eastern United States, Chinch bugs use their piercing mouths that they use to suck sap and inject toxins into the crowns and stems of grass. They attack a variety of grasses including Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescues, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, and zoysia.


  • These insects are mainly active at night and chew the grass blades. In heavy infected lawns, they can devout the entire grass blade to the soil level. There can be as many as 6 generations per year.


  • Spittlebugs are generally found in heavy thatched soils. They suck the juices out of grass blades and have 2 generations per year, with the fall being the most destructive.
