What are Grub Worms?
Grub worms are the larval-life stage of different taxonomic groups of beetles in the scarab family. They have C-shaped shiny bodies that are creamy.
The Best Time to Treat Grub Worms
The peak feeding time for grubs is early fall. When the soil temperature reduces, grubs dig in and stay dormant until spring. Therefore, the best time to treat your lawn for grubs is early fall before the temperatures drop. Grubs are a common lawn problem that you need to prevent before it starts.
Failure to deal with grubs on your lawn leaves it brown and unattractive. Besides, their presence invites other animals that dig up patches of grass on your lawn searching for them.
Detection and Prevention of Grub Worms
Early detection of grub worms is vital in treating them. Problems caused by these worms develop in lawns that have a single species of grass or over-watered and over-fertilized lawns.
You can prevent the worms by avoiding the use of synthetic lawn fertilizers and starting to use natural lawn fertilizers.
Frequent and shallow watering makes the soil soft and damp and favorable for the female beetles to lay eggs. Damp soil also makes it easier for the newly hatched grub worms to survive. Therefore, you can prevent the infestation of grub worms on your lawn by not watering and allowing your lawn to be dormant in summer.
To prevent extensive damage on your lawn, you need to mow your lawn to a height between there and four inches. Also, you need to ensure that the grass on your lawn is clay-based and compacted.
