Grub Control for Worcester, Massachusetts

Grub Control in Worcester, MassachusettsGrub control for Worcester, Massachusetts is typically a discussion homeowners have in the warmer seasons when they notice their lawns turning brown, but by then, it’s almost too late. If you’ve had a problem with grubs in the past in Worcester, Massachusetts and either ignored it or perhaps tried doing grub removal using grub treatments yourself, then you should probably contact the grub elimination professionals at Ford’s Hometown Services for the coming season.

First, let’s discuss what a grub is – not all grubs are the same. The word “grub” is used generally to identify the larvae of several different beetles. These larvae, or very young beetles in their early development stage – feed on grass roots, chewing them off and damaging or even killing the grass. While grubs in Central Massachusetts are often Japanese beetle larvae, they can also be billbugs, black turfgrass ataenius, and June bugs. If you suspect you have a grub problem and need grub applications to ensure grub removal, grub control professionals such as Ford’s Hometown Services can identify which beetle larvae are infesting your lawn and recommend the proper grub treatments for Worcester, Massachusetts to ensure grub removal. More often than not, this will involve the proper use of professional grub treatments such as grub spraying or other grub control solutions .

Before treating the lawn on your own with grub applications such as insecticides and grub spraying, you should determine if the grub infestation is severe enough to warrant grub treatment for your lawn in Worcester, Massachusetts. Select a one-square-foot area that includes both healthy grass and damaged grass. Try to pull it up and away from the soil by hand. Where grubs have been feeding, the grass should pull up easily as though it were newly laid sod. If the grass does not lift easily, use the tip of a shovel to lift it in a few areas. If there are fewer than six grubs in that one-square-foot section, treatment is not really necessary. When there are six or more, the your lawn in Worcester, Massachusetts requires grub elimination and should be treated right away for grub removal by grub control specialists such as Ford’s.
