The last thing you want to discover on your lawn is grubs. Grubs are root-feeding pests that can cause severe damage to your turf and they are very common here in Arkansas, so you won't want to skip out on a preventative grub control treatment this year! These treatments work by eliminating grub eggs or newly hatched grubs before they have a chance to start feeding on the roots of your grass. However, the timing of a preventative grub control treatment is crucial and you need to ensure that you apply it before a certain point in the grub life cycle, so the best time to do so is in April. If you skip a preventative grub control treatment, you risk your lawn becoming infested with grubs. Then, you'd have to schedule a curative treatment, plus other lawn care services to help your lawn recover. So, a preventative grub control treatment is the best way to avoid this headache altogether.
How does a preventative grub control treatment work?
Preventative grub control treatments are highly effective because they eliminate grubs before they ever have a chance to cause damage to your precious lawn! After applying this blanket treatment across your entire turf, it seeps into the soil and kills any eggs and newly hatched grubs underneath. That way, it prevents them from finding their favorite food source - the roots of your grass.
When should you apply a preventative grub control treatment?
While a preventative grub control treatment is just what you need to get ahead of grubs, timing is essential. This treatment is only effective during a certain point in the grub life cycle, and you'll want to apply it earlier rather than later to ensure it works. So, the best time to apply it here in Arkansas is in April; this is early enough in the year for the preventative treatment to establish in the soil and actively prevent grubs from feasting on your turf's roots.
What happens if you skip a preventative grub control treatment?
If you were to skip a preventative grub control treatment, you'd risk a grub infestation on your lawn. Once that happens, you'd have to schedule a curative treatment to stop the grubs. However, this treatment is damaging to all living things in your soil - even the good things. Not only that, but you'd also need other lawn care services to help your turf recover and rebuild its strength. The best way to avoid these problems is by investing in a preventative grub control treatment. That way, you don't have to use harmful curative treatments and spend even more money on getting your lawn on track to good health again.
Common signs of a grub infestation include brown patches of grass, your lawn pulling up like a carpet, and it feeling spongey when you walk on it.
