It’s easy to blame dry patches of grass on our long, hot north Texas summers. Grub worms are part of the north Texas ecosystem, but they don’t belong in your yard. Grub worm damage resembles drought symptoms, but the problem runs much deeper. Those yellow and brown areas are the result of systematic root failure caused by grubs feeding underground. Your grass loses its ability to process water and nutrients, and hot weather makes bad conditions worse. Even worse, grubs are attractive food for foragers like moles, skunks and raccoons who will tear up your yard looking for these tasty morsels.
Grub larvae remain dormant in your soil for two weeks after hatching, so timing is critical to successful grub control. We recommend initial treatments in early June and no later than July. This strategy prevents immature grub larvae from developing and progressing into feeding cycles. Our teams evaluate the severity of your grub infestation and develop a plan based on your lawn’s condition. We use industry-proven techniques to ensure your yard’s health with early grub protection that promotes a strong root system and healthy turf.
