Grub Control

Protect your lawn against grub damage with BAM’s grub control services.

Grub Control Services

Grubs are one of the most dangerous lawn pests. Grubs are young Japanese beetles (also known as larvae). The eggs of these beetles are laid in lawns. Those eggs will hatch into grub larvae in the summer, feeding on the roots of your lawn and causing severe damage over time. Grub management provides homeowners with a quick and extremely effective way to eliminate grubs.

Our grub control services at BAM’S Landscaping will give you peace of mind that your lawn will always be free of grubs. Whether you are looking to control an infestation or want to actively prevent these pests from growing in your yard, we’ve got you covered. Give us a call today for the best grub control services in the Kensington, MD area.

Signs of a Grub Infestation

Grubs inflict peculiar and unique damage because they feed on and damage grass roots underground. When your lawn’s root system is weakened, it cannot absorb enough water and nutrients. Grass cannot grow in such conditions. If you suspect that you have grubs in your yard, search for the following signs to confirm or deny your suspicions:

  • Moths or beetles are flying around at grass level
  • Animals are hanging out and feeding on your grass
  • Brown patches in your lawn
  • You’ve actively seen grubs in your grass
  • Grass feels bouncy or loose
  • Grass has severe damage, such as full-on turf detachment

Grub Control Tips

Beetles, such as Japanese and chafer beetles, emerge in early summer, feast on garden plants, and lay their eggs in the lawn soil. The grubs hatch later in the summer and immediately begin to feed.

They will continue to eat and grow until mid-fall, when they will move deeper into the soil to survive the winter. When the soil warms up again in the spring, the large, mature grubs return to the upper soil levels, where they transform into adult beetles that emerge in early summer and repeat the process.

The key to grub control is to kill them before they hatch and cause damage to your lawn. Apply a preventative grub control product to your lawn in the spring or early summer, following the label directions. This is especially critical if you’ve previously experienced grub issues.

To completely eliminate the presence of grubs, it is best to hire a professional lawn care provider. This will spare you from the potential hazards of combining pesticides and ruining your lawn or endangering yourself and your family. Furthermore, the professionals will guarantee that the grubs are completely eliminated.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Grub Control Services

With all of the advantages of professional pest treatment, the only barrier to taking the plunge is the issue of cost.

When you consider the costs that you could suffer if grubs decimate your lawn, an investment in a professional grub control method becomes much smaller. If a company offers free estimates and upfront pricing, then that is a great indicator that you should hire them.

Furthermore, your time and energy are valuable. The amount of time and energy required to solve this problem totally on your own is possibly greater than you realize. At the end of the day, most individuals believe that the peace of mind gained from knowing that their lawn is protected is worth the expenditure.

By selecting a lawn care company that provides professional grub control, you are making an important decision to protect your lawn from pests.

If you find a company that has excellent reviews, is licensed and insured, and has a money-back guarantee, then you should hire them to take care of your grub issues.
