THERE ARE TWO THINGS YOU SHOUL D
KNOW ABOUT WHITE GRUBS AND LAWN DAMAGING INSECTS IN YOUR LAWN:
1) Contrary to the scare tactics employed by some lawn care companies, there is no certainty that your lawn will have a grub or insect damage problem this year.
2) Those who have ever had a major grub or other damaging insect problem in their lawn never want it to happen again.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE WHITE
White grubs are the larval stage of various beetles such as Japanese beetle and June beetles. While in the larval stage they can do major damage to lawns by eating the grass roots, actually killing the grass plant. As adult beetles, they become a nuisance in the landscape by eating and skeletonizing favorite plants such as roses. In the fall, grubs in the lawn also attract various wild animals such as skunks and raccoons. These animals do alot of damage to the lawn as they dig looking for a meal.
WHAT IS THE INSECT DAMAGE OUTLOOK FOR 2015?
insect factors going into the 2015 season involve the wet
summer that occurred in 2014. Central Ohio received regular periods of rain in 2014.
Since beetles lay dehydrated eggs in late July that need moisture
to hatch as grubs and survive, 2014 weather patterns provided
an ideal environment for grub survival in unprotected
lawns. As these grubs overwinter and
mature this spring and summer, this means a greater population of
beetles laying more eggs and the potential for increased grub damage
again to unprotected lawns in 2015.
Also, because of the extremely wet spring and summer, alot,
(but not all) insect damage was masked
by the lawn's ability to recover due to adequate moisture and
cool temperatures for much of the summer. If lawns
were not treated, all of these damaging insects have overwintered
and are ready to do more damage
this spring and summer. Insect damage will be even more severe if we have a hot dry summer that doesn't allow the lawns to recover easily.
DOES EASY ACRES CONTROL DAMAGING LAWN INSECTS?
We believe that the best approach is to take a
preventive course of action, and this year we are once
again beefing up our insect control program due to the
increased potential for damage. We are taking advantage of new
that are safer than ever before both for your family and the environment,
as well as showing improved results against both grubs
and surface insects. Our grub application will control the grub larvae while they
are still in the very
small stages of development. By doing this we can eliminate the
damage done by these larvae as well as use much more environmentally friendly
products. The active ingredient will also suppress other major pests
such as Bluegrass Billbug and
Chinch Bug thereby eliminating or at least greatly reducing damage done
by them. An added benefit for pet owners is that the
application will also rid your yard of any fleas and ticks
present in the lawn at the time of
If you do
not select a "preventive" application and have grub damage, we
can sometimes make a "curative" application to eliminate the pest
(depending on what stage they are in when discovered).
However, this will not address the damage already done, and the
overall cost will be greater when you consider the expense of
repairing the damaged lawn.
and billbugs are known to sometimes have two generations a year, a
second treatment may be required later in the summer if they are
found to have traveled in from an adjacent and untreated
