Grub Control

Most lawn soils will have a few grubs and the damage they cause is usually minimal. However, as lawn grub population mature, their numbers increase until they suddenly reach a critical threshold. At that point the damage caused by their feeding in the form of large dead patches in the lawn is clear for everyone to see. Once you notice the damage (usually in late summer or early fall) it is too late and the only option is to replace your damaged lawn!

Here in Knoxville we start treating our Grub Control Treatment beginning in early May. Our Grub Control Treatment is designed to attack newly laid eggs before they can grow into the large larva that can devastate even a healthy lawn. To prevent grub damage to your valuable lawn, call us today to request this additional service.
