Insects and grub worms can undermine even the best and healthiest of landscapes. As if they weren’t enough of a problem on their own, their presence can attract moles, which wreak havoc on your lawn.
The key to quality insect management is to inspect your lawn regularly in order to spot unwanted insect populations early.
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. Your lawn care specialist may recommend a program that integrates both curative insect and grub treatments and preventive measures in order to maintain maximum insect and grub management in your lawn and garden.
Types of Grubs
White grubs and chinch bugs typically cause the most damage to lawns.
- The most widespread and destructive pests in the Northeastern United States. They damage grass by chewing the roots. The only solution is often a professional grub management service.
- Also prevalent in the Northeast, 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.
