June is the best time to apply a preventative grub control application. Any grubs in your lawn now will be hatching into beetles, which will fly around and lay eggs in the lawn in early July. Applying a preventative product now inhibits eggs from hatching and ensures a grub free lawn through the following summer. We apply grub control between June 15 and July 15.

European chafer grubs feed most heavily on grass roots from August to November and from March to early May. Even during the winter months, grubs may resume feeding during warm spells. Turf damage caused by grub feeding injury to roots is most severe under drought conditions, when water-stressed grass plants cannot grow new roots to replace injured ones. The damage is typically observed when the turf fails to turn green in the early spring. In heavily infested areas, entire lawns may turn brown and die during prolonged periods of dry weather in the fall or spring.
