Long Live Your Lawn: Grub Control

Blaire Benson

We're here to help you deal with grubs this season before the damage is done! Grubs are waking up from their winter slumber and will cause sections of your lawn to die as they feed on roots and organic matter. They also draw in their predators like your neighborhood skunks, raccoons and moles, resulting in not only brown, but torn up lawns.

We recommend using Bayer Advanced’s Season Long Grub Control Plus Turf Revitalizer. The formula creates a season-long barrier that will kill grubs before they do any damage. Apply anytime now through late summer; our 12 lb. bag will cover up to 5,000 sq. ft. The Grub Control also contains a 6-0-1 fertilizer that promotes thicker root mass for tougher turf. 

It’s ideal to take care of grubs this season before the beetles lay eggs in your lawn during late-summer and continue the cycle next year. Look out for brown patches lacking roots or spongy turf, a sign that grubs are present. Stop by the nursery with any questions you may have, so we can help keep your lawn looking healthy this season!
