Lawn grubs are a pest nobody wants in their lawn. Unfortunately, once lawn grubs begin to infest your lawn, they are notoriously difficult to get rid of and they can cause extensive damage in very little time. Lawn grubs are small pests that feed off grass roots in your lawn, resulting in brown and dead spots that can last numerous seasons. The good news is that there are steps you can take to treat and prevent future lawn grub problems. Our team at Big League Lawns offers grub control applications for residential and commercial customers in Weber and Davis County Utah. Beginning with a free lawn analysis, we determine the proper treatment plan for your yard based on your grass type, soil composition, climate, and other important factors.

Lawn Grubs: What You Need to Know
Lawn grubs are typically dormant and live in the soil throughout the colder months of fall and winter. Once the weather warms up during the spring and summer, lawn grubs emerge and begin snacking on the roots of your grass. These small grubs are white in color, c-shaped, and come in the form larvae from local beetle populations. As the larvae grow into adult beetles over the summer, they will emerge to be visible above the soil. At this point, they may begin eating flowers and garden plants, causing further devastation to your yard. Eventually, they will lay eggs and the cycle will continue into the next season—unless you do something about it!
Does My Lawn Have Grubs?
Not sure if your lawn has grubs? There are a few steps you can take to determine if this is the case. Start by locating a patch of brown or dead grass on your property. Using a shovel, dig up a chunk of the grass to a depth of about two inches. Now, look up close for small (less than an inch in length) grubs that are white in color. Even if you only spot a few of them, it’s likely that the problem will only multiply if you don’t act quickly. Depending on the severity of the infestation, you may have just a few small patches of dying grass or very large sections.
Grub Treatment for Lawns in Utah
Avoid grabbing the first pesticide you see at your local gardening or home improvement store.
