Grub Control in Ohio and Florida
One of the most destructive of these lawn pests is the grub. As you probably already know, grubs are public enemy number one when it comes to lawn pests. Grubs are actually the larvae of June bugs that emerge in the late spring to lay eggs in your lawn. The grubs feed on the roots of your grass from June to August and can utterly devastate a lawn.
Here are some signs that you might have a grub problem:
- Is your lawn root system damaged or weakened?
- Is your yard attracting large flocks of birds pecking at your sod?
- Are animals digging up your yard at night?
Unlike the beneficial earthworm that naturally aerates the soil, grubs feed on the tender roots of grass and can quickly turn a healthy lawn into a barren wasteland, often resembling a prolonged drought.

About this Service
If you suspect a grub infestation, call the experts at Land-Art immediately before any more damage is done.
When you have a grub problem, the worms themselves aren’t the only dangers your yard faces. Grubs are also a delicacy for a number of other pests that can lay waste to your beautiful turf.
- Skunks, Racoons, Opossums: These animals are also very fond of grub and can smell them from far away. They’ll quickly dig up your lawn to get at the delicious grub.
Because grubs are subterranean dwellers, it’s really hard to tell if you have a problem until the signs become visible, but by then it’s already too late. It’s important to take precautionary measures and watch your lawn carefully in the spring. If you see grass starting to wilt or die in places check under the lawn to see if there are grubs.
A healthy lawn can sustain a few grubs but if you find more than ten per square foot, then it’s time to call the professionals at Land-Art. We will come out to evaluate your situation and then discuss with you the best way of moving forward with treatment. We will then apply a grub treatment that will help drive down the grub population. Grubs can be a real nightmare for homeowners who love to show-off their lawns. Being vigilant for June bug activity early on and checking your lawn regularly will help you stay ahead of the problem.
