Experts In Grub Control
Is It Really Grub Damage?
Grubs love to munch on the roots of your lawn. These baby beetles hatch in the late summer and start eating until winter. After resting during the colder weather, they continue to eat as they develop throughout the spring. Once they are full-grown beetles they emerge from the soil ready to do even more damage to your landscaping. Then they lay eggs and the entire cycle starts all over again.
Grub damage can be limited to a few brown spots or it can get so bad, you can actually roll your lawn up like a carpet- the roots are gone!
You may also notice an otherwise healthy lawn feeling spongy. Other signs are skunks, raccoons, and birds searching the lawn for grubs to eat.

Pesticides For Grub Control
Custom Lawn Care will select the proper pesticides for your particular lawn and infestation. Such pesticides often must be watered in after application; apply at least half an inch of water. Typically this means running a lawn sprinkler for as much as an hour. User several straight-sided containers to measure and monitor sprinkler output to avoid creating pesticide runoff.
