We offer grub control services to properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, IL and nearby areas.
Keep the roots of your grass intact with our preventative and curative grub control treatments.
If you're noticing your lawn has become patchy and spongy when walked on, then you're probably experiencing the damage of grubs. The damage from these beetle larvae is irreversible because they feed on the roots of your grass, leaving your turf unanchored and unable to receive essential nutrients from the soil. But we have you covered! The best thing you can do to keep the roots of your grass intact is to prevent grubs from damaging your lawn through our preventative grub control treatment.
However, you can also schedule our curative grub control if you skipped the preventative treatment. Our team at Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC gladly serves properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, IL and surrounding communities.
Target Grubs Early with Our Preventative Grub Control Treatments
When adult beetles start to lay eggs in the soil, it's best to target them early before they hatch in the mid-to-late summer. At Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC, we offer our preventative grub control treatment in spring to prevent the eggs from hatching and the grubs from feeding on the roots of your grass. Like you, we want to be proactive when dealing with grubs, which is why we apply the treatments when they are just eggs. This will give the product enough time to sink into the soil and instantly kill the eggs and newly hatched grubs.
We highly recommend that you take action early against grubs and schedule our preventative treatments because grub damage is irreversible. In the end, you'll have to spend more money paying for services to fix the damage.
Curative grub control will kill existing grubs feasting on the roots of your grass.
We understand that you might have skipped scheduling our preventative grub control treatments, and now the grubs have hatched and are starting to feast on the roots of your grass. Our curative grub control is available for you! When you get our curative treatment, we will go to your property in early fall to apply the treatment that will kill the existing grubs. Again, we'd like to reiterate that even though our treatments will kill the grubs, they won't reverse the damage.
You might also need our curative treatment because you didn't even know grubs were there in the first place! These relentless lawn insects are problematic because the first signs of damage will only appear when they have significantly impacted your lawn already. Make sure you immediately schedule our curative grub control when you notice these signs:
- Spongy lawn
- Your grass easily rolls up like a carpet
- Brown patches on your lawn
The presence of raccoons, moles, and birds can also signify that you have grubs on your lawn since these animals feed on these lawn insects.
Reverse Grub Damage With Fertilization, Core Aeration, & Overseeding
Hope is not lost with grub damage. While curative treatments won't tackle the destruction caused by grubs, there are services you can schedule to rejuvenate your lawn. Our team can nurse your lawn back to health with these services:
- Fertilization: Fertilization will strengthen your lawn so it won't easily succumb to grub damage.
- Core aeration: This service will loosen up your soil and give it better access to essential nutrients, water, air, and sunlight.
- Overseeding: Overseeding paired with aeration is the best way to give back life to your turf. This will encourage thicker grass growth so that you can say goodbye to the spongy and patchy lawn left by grubs!
