White Grub in Dirt

White Grub Control and Treatment

What is a white grub?

White-bodied with a brown head, these C-shaped larvae attack the roots of your grasses and ornamental plants, cutting off nutrients and causing damage.  White grubs are the immature form of various types of scarab beetles – so, once they grow into adults, they will emerge from dirt to reproduce and cause an even bigger grub problem.

At first, the oddly shaped patches of grass whose roots they feed on will turn gray-green and wilt. If the feeding continues, the turf will become spongy from their tunneling and attract skunks, raccoons, opossums and moles. Grub worms open the door for many pests and problems if not treated quickly and correctly.

Are white grubs dangerous?

No, white grubs are not inherently dangerous to you or your family. However, if left unchecked they will not only attract other pests that use them as a food source, they can cause hard to repair damage to your lawn, garden, and potted plants.

Why do I have white grubs?

It’s likely a combination of two things: nearness to another area that they’ve already made their home and an ideal environment. All they’re looking for is moist soil, so if your yard has some, it’s an easy place for them to settle in.

How can I prevent white grubs?

White grubs love moisture. They thrive in soil that possesses high levels of moisture, so a good way to drive them out if you have them or keep them out if you’re worried about them is by lessening the amount of water you use on your lawn.
