Surface Insect and Grub Preventative

Surface Insect and Grub Preventative

Grubs are probably the most destructive pest you can have on your lawn – or, to be more precise, underneath your yard. These voracious insects wake up during the warm season and start feeding on your turf grassroots. Their appetite for almost all turf varieties makes them some of the biggest enemies of a lawn and landscape.

Grub Control

Who Needs Grub Control Services?

In the past years, many lawns experienced high levels of grub activity that homeowners have detected only after costly damages have occurred. We highly recommend our Grub Control service to prevent grub damage and remove other insects.

You need our Grub Control Service if you notice the following lawn signs and symptoms:

  • You start to see that in late spring and early summer, your turf begins to yellow, thin, and die –unusual behavior for the season;
  • Your lawn and landscape will start to feature brown grass patches;
  • When you pull up a handful of grass strands, you notice it is spongy in texture and comes out very quickly as if it doesn’t have roots;
  • Area of turf roll away like sod.

The moment you take note of these symptoms, you need to call your local On The Green, Inc. specialists right away, because you have a grub problem on your property.

How Do We Approach Grub Control?

A maintenance insecticide application is an integral part of a healthy lawn and preventing potential damage to the root system. We apply our Surface Insect and Grub Preventative starting in June, as a part of our Green Care Lawn Program. During the early summer months, grubs are actively feeding and stay close to the surface, so this is the best time for control.

"On The Green is the BEST! I have used other companies, but there is no comparison. I was just admiring my lawn this morning - saying that it is beautiful and looks like a green carpet. In addition to my lawn care, they also service my in-ground sprinkler system. Customer service is top-notch."

"We recently hired On the Green to take care of our yard. Our grass is starting to look better. Today they showed up to clean up the leaves and other things that blow into our yard from the park across the road. These two guys did a fantastic job. We have a low sitting deck and they managed to get the leaves out from under it. On the Green has a 5 star rating with us."
