How to Make Sure Grubs Don’t Destroy Your Lawn

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What are grubs?

White grubs are the larval stage of beetles and are the most widespread turf grass pests in the United States. In fact, there are a number of different types of grubs that can damage your lawn. A single grub is usually less than 1 inch in length and usually curled into a C-shape when exposed. However, just 10 grubs in a square foot of grass can permanently damage a healthy lawn because grubs feed on grass roots. In fact, there may be several types of grubs within a single patch of infested grass.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans spend $156 million each year replacing the lawns that grubs destroy. And if you add up the total loss grubs cause throughout their lifecycle, the USDA estimates a staggering $460 million a year in damage.

Have grubs invaded your lawn? Here are some ways to tell if you have grubs in your lawn:

* There are irregular brown patches in your lawn that don’t go away with watering.

* You can easily pull up infested sections of your lawn like a rug.

* There are a large number of birds in your yard. Birds eat grubs.

* Evidence of moles, skunks, or raccoons, which feed on grubs, is apparent.

You can fight back. Bayer Advanced Lawn Season-Long Grub Control, containing the proprietary active ingredient Merit, is proven to kill more grubs – guaranteed.
