Grub Control in Illinois

What Are Grubs?

Grubs are the larval form of scarab beetles, like the Japanese Beetles. These white, “C-shaped” larvae feed on the roots and soil underneath the grass. Infestations can go unnoticed for long periods of time, until large portions of the lawn are already destroyed.

Signs of a Surface-Feeding Insect Infestation

Ensuring a healthy lawn goes beyond weed control; it also involves protecting against destructive surface-feeding insects like grubs. Detecting signs of their presence early is crucial.

Keep an eye out for these indicators:

  • Yellow/Brown Grass: An abrupt change in grass color, especially in localized patches, may signal grub damage as they feed on grassroots, depriving them of nutrients and water.
  • Dry, Wilted Grass: Grub-infested areas often exhibit signs of drought stress, with grass appearing dry and wilted despite adequate watering.
  • Dead Spots: Grubs can cause extensive damage, resulting in patches of dead grass where their feeding activity has been most intense.
  • Skeletonized Leaves: As grubs feed, they consume grass roots and may also nibble on above-ground plant parts, leaving behind leaves with a skeleton-like appearance.
  • “Moving” Grass With No Wind: Grub activity can loosen the soil, causing the grass to feel spongy underfoot or appear to move even without wind.
