It will give back with a healthy, vibrant lawn you are proud to own at a surprisingly low cost. Operated locally, GreenMark Lawn Service offers affordable rates and a money back guarantee.
A healthy lawn is the best prevention
Your first step in preventative grub control is to keep them out of your lawn in the first place. The first line of defense is to care for your lawn, make it shiny and healthy, strong in natural defenses. A healthy lawn wards off grubs. As a strong immune system keeps us from getting sick, a vibrant green lawn helps to grow its own defenses. Like we take care of our bodies, we must take care of our lawns. Healthy, natural lawn treatment is essential.
Unfortunately, there’s no quick way to detect the presence of grubs at an early stage. When symptoms appear, it’s usually too late- grubs have already infested your lawn beyond a treatable stage. The key to prevention is careful lawn treatment.
Systematically applied mid-summer or early fall, Merit® Grub Control from Bayer is absolutely the best product on the market. Proven to be effective, it kills grubs where they sleep, as soon as they are born. As the newly hatched grubs feed on the applied roots, they eat the Merit® and die- long before they wreak their devastation on your lawn.
To be most effective, you should try to do a good job at predicting when larvae appear. Like keeping an eye on the weather, you should keep an eye on your lawn. Know its cycles and trends. If a small infestation generally shows up in the fall, you can be sure to see them again the following year.
Pay attention to the insects in your yard during the summer. If you notice large populations of Japanese beetles, there’s a good chance you’ll see their grubs hatching later in the summer. Spotting a grub problem before it becomes a problem can save you a lot of money and hassle in the future.
In the case of grubs, there are two ways to approach your problem. First, you can take the preventative approach and maintain your lawn with the necessary Merit® application. The second approach is to care for the damage that’s already been done. Careful lawn treatment can heal your lawn and bring back its shine. Proper lawn service can restore a damaged lawn’s health, bring out its vibrant shine for you to enjoy.
Curing a damaged lawn is the more costly approach to handling your grub problem. The majority of the time, serious grub damage will mean replanting some of your lawn to heal its health.
Proper lawn treatment requires expert care, someone who knows the cures for problems that inevitably present themselves in maintaining a healthy lawn. Call in a local expert, one who is familiar with your lawn’s particular climate and rainfall, before it’s too late. Grubs will kill your lawn.

If your lawn becomes seriously damaged by white grubs, you can roll patches of your lawn back like a carpet. After hatching from eggs in about 10 days, the tiny grubs start feeding immediately on your lawn, damaging your grass with dead, tan patches, killing the roots and the turf in their wake. Most injury will occur during the fall, grubs feed near the surface of your lawn, damaging whole areas of its beauty with patches of dead grass.
Female adult beetles deposit their eggs in the moistness of your soil. The eggs need ample moisture to promote hatching.
When the soil temperatures drop in the fall, the grubs move down 6 to 12 inches in the soil where they spend the winter. But their devastation is far from over. In April, they move back up the roots of your lawn and continue feeding on your grass. In late May and June, they change to the pupal stage. They emerge as adult beetles in late June, increasing in numbers until they peak in July.
White grubs can damage the lush quality of your lawn, creating tan patches of dead grass that is often spongy to walk on. They can ruin the quality of a lawn treatment if not dealt with quickly. As they continue to lay eggs and be pests year after year, white grubs can be a perpetual problem if not dealt with correctly through a quality lawn service. Call your GreenMark Lawn Service representative to guard against infestations that can ruin your lawn.
