|Do you have dead spots in your yard?|
This week I am going to be talking about grub worms. Sometimes it is hard to tell if you have grubs in your lawn, but there are some tell tell signs. If you have random dead patches of grass there is a good chance you have grub worms in these spots.
One way to find out for sure is to 1, call us or 2, pull up the grass in one of the dead spots and see if there are any visible grub worms.
The adult of the white grub is the Japanese Beetle, May beetle or June beetle. The larva, which is "C"-shaped with a white body and tan or brown head, produces damage to lawns and gardens. The larvae feed on grass roots causing yellow spots and patches on lawns. The adult beetles feed on over 275 plant species including roses, other ornamentals, all deciduous fruit trees, many smallfruits, vegetables, grasses and weeds.
A fully-grown larva is 20 to 25 mm long, and dark-colored. Two rows of minute hairs on the underside of the last segment distinguish white grubs from similar-looking larvae. White grubs overwinter as larvae and are ready to start feeding on roots as the soil warms up in the spring. Depending on the species, a life cycle may require one, two, or more years. Damage results from larvae feeding on roots. The most obvious and significant damage occurs during the spring and summer.
