As with fighting any other battle, timing is the key to success. April and August are key months when grub control is most successful.
Grubs are the larvae of beetles or moths. In spring, grubs become adults, mate and lay eggs that become the next generation of grubs.
The April treatment controls the end stage of grubs before egg laying and the August to September treatment controls the grubs before they dig themselves in deep for hibernation.
Grubs feed all summer long, eating the roots of your lawn and growing nice and fat before hibernating for the winter.
Raccoons and skunks love to harvest and eat grubs at their fattest. Those pesky critters can roll back a lawn like a carpet to get at the tasty grubs.
It is amazing to see the amount of damage a nocturnal feeding frenzy can do to a lawn.
Yamagami's offers 2 natural options for control: beneficial nematodes and Safer's Grub Killer. The nematodes are safe to use on lawns, flowerbeds, and veggie gardens.
It is using good bugs to get the bad ones. Apply the nematodes in the evening. They lay their eggs in the grubs. The eggs hatch and eat their way out of the grub...nice.
Protect your lawn the natural, safer way with Safer Grub Killer. It comes in a handy hose-end sprayer bottle for ease of application. Its active ingredient is Neem oil, the extract of the Neem tree.
If you or one of your neighbors has had a lawn torn up by critters, do something now to prevent it from happening again. Let the Nursery Pros at Yamagami's show you how.
