Option #1 - Grub Preventative Add-On (Imidacloprid)
Applied the end of June- beginning of July, (with "Round #3" of your Lawn Program.)
Our Grub Preventative is a systemic product with a 90-95% kill rate.
Systemic meaning that the insecticide is soaked up by the plants' root system, it then carries the insecticide down through the plant and when eaten by newly hatched larvae they are killed before they can do damage your beautiful lawn.
This is the better AND less expensive for you, your lawn is kept healthy in general so you are not just saving yourself from having a grub/beetle infestation, but the time and cost of repairing the damage that is caused from that infestation.
Option #2 - Curative Grub Control Add-On (Dylox)
This ideally needs to be applied in September- November (but in some cases also April to May.)
It works by killing the grubs which by then are already quite large and already rapidly feeding on the root system of your lawn and causing the signs and symptoms of damage that you have seen.
This may need to be applied more than once and you may also need to do some over-seeding as well to restore the grass that has died off as a result of the infestation.
This can be done through November, but needing to catch them before they hibernate deep in the soil, preparing to destroy your lawn next year as well.
And/or in April (and sometimes May), this curative approach can be done for the first time or as an extra step in making sure you do not have a second year of grub destruction. At this time we would be getting to hibernating grubs from last year awaken and start to feed.
*This service cannot be pre-ordered, Dylox is only used as needed, when needed. And because Dylox is a more toxic chemical and more costly than preventative.
Like we mentioned we highly recommend that if your lawn is prone to having grubs, that you sign up for the Grub Preventative.
Grubs Can Devastate Your Lawn
RAL offers a couple of options to make sure that these insects do NOT.
