What are lawn grubs?

Typical lawn grubs, often called white grubs, are white, C-shaped beetle larvae about a half inch in length. A grub may be the larvae of the masked chafer, European chafer, Japanese beetle, or other beetle species. Lawn grubs have soft bodies with legs near the head. If you find them in your lawn, then the only good news is that grubs are most attracted to healthy, thick grass. But the bad news is that if left unchecked, they can destroy your whole lawn!

How do lawn grubs damage your lawn?

Lawn grubs feed on grassroots (and organic matter in the soil), causing sections of grass in the lawn to die. In the spring, the grubs awaken from winter and begin feeding on your lawn’s grass root system. Grubs eventually turn into adult beetles and emerge from the soil to mate and lay eggs, usually around midsummer.

The beetles will also feed on garden foliage and flowers, causing even more damage. In the fall, the eggs hatch into more grubs, only making the problem worse and repeating the destructive cycle that’ll keep your lawn looking patchy and unhealthy.

In addition, if you have a large population of grubs in your lawn, you might notice additional holes and damage to the turf from skunks and raccoons searching for one of their favorite meals. Not only does their digging mess up the look of your lawn, but it’s facilitated by the structural integrity of your turf being compromised by the grubs in the first place.
