Seeing Grub Worms in Your Yard?

Lawn grubs have soft bodies with legs near the head. They feed on grass roots causing sections of grass in the lawn to die. Grubs eventually turn into adult beetles and emerge from soil to mate and lay eggs, which hatch into more grubs. Grass with damaged roots will begin to thin, turn yellow, and die. Irregular patches of brown grass will appear in random places in your lawn are an indicator of active grub worms. Grass will also feel very spongy and will pull up easily. Since the roots are damaged, turf will often roll up like carpet.

It’s best to treat for grub worms anywhere from August to October because grubs feed heavily on grass roots throughout the late summer and early fall. Although grubs are more common in the fall, it’s also possible to get them during the spring. TNT offers both a grub preventative and a grub curative to help protect your lawn all throughout the year.
