Grub Worm Control

By TruGreen December 17, 2015

Narrator:

No homeowner wants to hear that his or her beautiful green lawn is under attack, but the truth is that your lawn is fighting a constant battle against nature. Drought and weeds are tough enough to combat, but when you include lawn damaging insects like grub worms into the mix, it's enough to make the most vigilant homeowner nervous. The first question you might be asking is a simple one. What exactly is a grub worm, and where do they come from? Well, a grub worm is simply the immature larva of a beetle. A female beetle lays as many as 60 eggs in her lifetime. When these eggs hatch, these larvae quickly begin looking for something to eat. It just so happens that they love eating your grass and ornamental plants. Once you've contacted a PhD certified specialist from TruGreen® to help, the first thing he or she will do is monitor your lawn for adult beetle activity. Armed with valuable historical data about infestations in your area, TruGreen® can help you get a head start on controlling the problem. The specialist will also know what conditions are ideal for grub activity and where to target insecticide applications for maximum effectiveness. For example, did you know that shaded lawns have fewer grub problems than those receiving a lot of sunlight? Or that drought-stricken lawns often inhibit, or prevent grubs from surviving. TruGreen® has the expertise and experience to help protect your lawn from grub worms and other lawn-damaging insects. If you've noticed signs of insect activity or just aren't sure, contact TruGreen® today by visiting TruGreen.com or calling (866) 688-6722. With their help, you'll be well on your way to having a lawn you'll love.
