What Is A Grub Worm?
A grub worm is exactly what it sounds like — a large, white, worm-like grub that lives underground. These little white grubs may look harmless, but in reality, they can be extremely damaging to your garden and lawn.
Grub worms are the larvae of the June Beetle, of which there are more than 100 species, meaning there is a diverse variety of grub worm species here in South Florida. Luckily, they all look similar, making them easier to identify. If you find a white grub in your yard that lies in a “C” shape, it is likely that your yard is infested, making it crucial for you to contact your local grub worm removal specialists.
How Do I Know If My Yard Is Infested?
Interestingly, you are likely not at risk of your yard developing grub worm larvae every year, as their life cycles range among species between one and four years. That being said, they may be active in non-typical times of the year, meaning that you should be hyper-vigilant year-round.
Some of the most common signs that South Florida residents might see are wilting plants and discolorations in the grass. White grub worms feed on the roots of plants (especially grass), sometimes decimating the roots to the point that you could pull up your grass like carpet or newly laid sod. If you see that your plants or lawn are becoming discolored or appearing to be unhealthy, we urge you to contact us at native pest management before the grub worms can fully destroy your yard.
