What Is A Grub Worm?
A grub worm is exactly what it sounds like — a large, white, worm-like grub that lives underground. These grub worms can be extremely damaging to your lawn, often consuming the roots to the point that areas of the lawn will require resodding.
Grub worms are the larvae of the June Beetle, of which there are more than 100 species. If you find a white grub in your yard that lies in a “C” shape, we recommending contacting us today to schedule a free lawn analysis.
How Do I Know If My Lawn Has Grub Worms?
The first sign of grub worms in your lawn would be grass that appears patchy or brown in various areas. The easiest way to identify turf damaged by grub grass is to grab onto the grass and pull upwards. If grub worms have eaten the roots, the grass will easily pull out of the ground with no resistance.

If you believe you have grub worms damaging your lawn, we urge you to contact us today to schedule a free inspection of your lawn as soon as possible. When we confirm the presence of grub worms in your lawn, we will schedule an immediate application to eliminate them.
At the same time, we will apply a granular fertilizer to your lawn that is high in potassium which promotes root growth to help regenerate the roots that the grubs destroyed. Hopefully if the infestation is identified and treated soon enough, we can save your lawn without the expensive cost of resodding.
