Autum Season Grub Control - Lenny's Pest Control

Autumn Season

Autumn is the best time to inspect for grubs, although early spring can also bring on early infestations. At these times the grubs are near the soil surface feeding at the root zone. Use a spade to cut three sides of a strip one foot square and three inches deep.. After inspection, replace the strip of sod to insure roots can re-establish contact with the soil. Repeat this procedure in several other areas of the lawn to locate possible white grub infestations.

For whitegrub elimination, treat with Merit insecticides.  Two types of  Merit systemic products are available:   Merit Granules and  Merit Spray Concentrate.  Both work but most professionals prefer using the granular Merit Systemic Insecticide.  Water the insecticide well, in order to deliver the material deep enough to kill the grubs.
Lawn spraying and fertilization can be utilized to protect your home from invaders. Home lawns are commonly infested with insects, bugs, weeds, diseases and other pests which cause severe damage to turfgrass. These pests can be divided into two groups based on their location: SOIL INHABITANTS and THATCH INHABITANTS. Both groups severely damage lawns. A knowledge of pest biology and habits is helpful when implementing effective control programs.
