White Grubs

What¬†You Can’t See Can Destroy¬†Your Lawn!

Newborn Larvae Feed on Roots From Hatching Until Cold Weather Returns.

White grubs are the larvae of Japanese and several other types of beetle. They are whitish with dark heads and observed in a curled position. Grubs hatch from eggs deposited in the ground by the female beetles. During their life cycle, they exist an inch or two below the surface chewing voraciously on grass roots, out of sight until the damage to your lawn has been done (large patches of dead grass). Grub activity may also be detected by the presence of skunks or birds tearing up sod to feed on the insects.

When the soil begins to warm in Spring, grubs hatched during the Fall rise to the root zone and become active feeders. After this stage, they enter into the pupa stage and eventually into adults. From early Spring and into mid-Summer, females burrow into the soil to lay 50 to 60 eggs each. These eggs hatch as newborn larvae and continue the cycle.
