Grub and Mole Control

Moles

Moles are increasingly becoming a problem in lawns. Once moles enter the lawn they can completely destroy the turf grass which results in costly repairs.

moleEliminating larvae can help control the desire for moles to enter the lawn by taking away one of their major food sources. However, moles also feed on earthworms which are not controllable.

The solution is to decrease their population levels. We recommend repellents and baits as the best methods of control. Green View Lawn Care can handle all aspects of eliminating moles by administering the bait.

Grubs

Grubs feed on the tender roots of grass which kills the plant from the ground up.

grubGrubs are the beginning stage of beetles, such as the Japanese beetle. When the beetles begin to reproduce the female lays her eggs in the soil of the lawn.

One female can lay between 40 - 60 eggs over a period of weeks. When the eggs hatch, the young grubs begin to feed. Each grub is about 1" long when fully grown and lies in a curled ā€œCā€ position.

In late autumn, the grubs burrow down 4" to 8" into the soil and remain inactive all winter. The grub spends about 10 months of the year in the soil in the larval stage.

Then in late summer grubs then begin to feed and cause damage to the lawn. Oftentimes, grubs go unnoticed because they live beneath the surface and are only discovered when the signs of damage begin to be seen. Damage appears as brown, dry, and brittle patches of grass.

Green View Lawn Care offers a grub control treatment that will attack the grubs when they are most vulnerable and before they can cause damage to your lawn. The treatment targets grubs and does not harm other beneficial insects that lives in your soil.
