Grubs can damage your lawn in Idaho by munching the roots of your grass until it is no longer attached to the soil. The key to protecting your lawn from becoming lunch for grubs is to apply preventative grub control treatments. This treatment will prevent grubs from destroying your turf by targeting them when they are just eggs. It's best to let a professional apply your preventative grub control treatment to ensure the application is applied correctly.

If you forgot to schedule a preventative grub control treatment and your grass is being attacked by grubs, you can schedule a curative treatment to kill the existing grubs on your turf. While this treatment will stop grubs in their tracks, it can't reverse any damage. However, you can schedule lawn care services to nurse your lawn back to health. Learn more about preventative grub control and how it protects your lawn from grubs.


How Preventative Grub Control Protects Your Lawn From Grubs

Preventative grub control prevents grubs from becoming a problem on your lawn by targeting grubs during the early stages of their life cycle before they pose a threat to your grass. It protects your lawn by working into the soil until it reaches the layer where the grub eggs are. This product will kill the eggs, preventing the grubs from ever hatching.

Timing is critical to ensure the treatments work the way they should. Ideally, preventative grub control should be applied in the spring to early summer to give the treatments some time to work their way into the soil. The treatments should also be applied before the eggs hatch, or else you'll be looking at a summer of actively feeding grubs.

Beetles can lay between 40 to 60 eggs during their short life time.


Always hire a professional to apply preventative grub control treatments.

If you want to get effective results with preventative grub control, always hire a professional to apply it. Preventative grub control treatments should be applied at the right time. Professionals know the correct timing to apply this treatment to ensure it will be applied before the grubs hatch. They will also make sure the correct amount is applied. If you decide to DIY your grub control treatments, you might not do it right, leading to a grub infestation on your lawn. When you hire professionals, you can have peace of mind knowing the treatment will be applied correctly and at the right time.

If you missed the window for preventative grub control treatments and are dealing with a current infestation, don't worry. You can still schedule curative treatments to stop the grub infestation in its tracks. However, the treatments won't be able to reverse any damage that the grubs have caused to your lawn.

  • Lawn Fertilization - Fertilization treatments will provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy.
