White Grubs

White Grub Control

White grubs, or grub worms, are very damaging lawn pests, and can be very difficult to control, because the damage may appear to be from other factors like drought or dogs. When you do identify grubs as the culprits of the damage, you will want to know how to kill grubs; being proactive and knowing how to identify white grub damage can help you to minimize and control damage to your lawn.

White Grubs are the larvae stage of Japanese Beetles.  Please visit our Japanese Beetle page to control the adult stage of white grubs.

White Grub Identification

White grubs are the larval stage of scarab beetles. The most prevalent damaging beetles in this species are Japanese beetles and masked chafer beetles, but other scarab beetles that have been known to cause damage include: Asiatic garden beetle, European chafer beetle, green June beetles, May and June beetles, and Oriental beetles. These lawn grubs are a milky white color with six legs. They are plump looking and c-shaped, and are usually one inch to one and a half inches long.

White Grub Damage 

White grubs eat the roots of the grass that makes up your lawn. This can cause brown patches and spongy turf. The damage may be most apparent in spring (April and May) or late summer and fall (September and October). When damage is especially bad, you will be able to pull the turf up in large sheets or pieces. Grub insects provide food for skunks, grows, and moles; an increase in activity from these animals may indicate a grub infestation. These animals can also cause secondary damage. 

How to Check for Grub Damage

It takes a little bit of work to determine if you have a big enough grub infestation to warrant control methods. You will have to dig samples of your turf and soil in various areas of your lawn and examine the samples for grubs. There are various opinions in how big of a sample and how many grubs per sample, but a square foot, about a few inches deep, in at least six different areas in your lawn should be sufficient. Some grubs in your soil are completely normal; even five in a sample is a fairly low number. Ten to twenty grubs are usually enough for grub control to begin.

How to Get Rid of Grubs

Getting rid of grubs can be very difficult because of the variability in species and climate that affects the life cycle stages of the larvae, and the difficulty in ensuring your insecticide application has entered the critical root level. Keep these things in mind when treating for white grubs:
  • Adult beetles usually lay eggs in early summer, and the grubs will be small in these months, making them easier to control because they are more susceptible to treatments. 
  • It is tough to know when to apply grub control products, it would be worth your time to try to identify the species of scarab beetle larvae that is infesting your lawn in order to figure out exactly when the grubs will be at their most vulnerable and controllable state. For example, with Japanese beetle grubs, applying in late July or August will help to suppress new grub population. When to treat for grubs, generally, late summer is best. Spring applications will not be effective grub killers. 
  • Don’t treat when damage is most visible or noticeable. The grubs have already done the bulk of their damage. Instead, try to treat when the grubs are young (soon after the adults have laid the eggs in the soil).
  • A thick thatch can prevent the insecticide application from reaching the level where the grubs feed, so follow the directions on the package, making sure to follow through with all the steps. Most applications like Merit grub control, or Milky Spore are granules that need water after application.
  • If you have had grub damage in past years, there is a good chance the grubs have returned to those same areas. Check and treat these areas, along with other suspected areas.
