Grubs Are Okay In Small Amounts

Having Some grubs are okay to have present in your lawn, as a healthy lawn has the ability to support a grub population of zero to five grubs per square foot. However, if the grub population exceeds nine per square foot, they will start to create visible damage and treatment is necessary to keep your lawn and vegetation intact.

How To Spot If You Have A Grub Problem

Many homeowners or gardeners may notice that they have a grub infestation when their lawn starts to wither away in large patches. You may have a grub problem if you can pull back the dead grass in a roll with one big pull, as they generally just eat the roots of the grass while leaving the tall leaves alone.

Once you pull the grass back, the C-shaped grubs are easy to locate.
