Davey’s Proactive Pest & Grub Control Management

Controlling grubs before they damage your lawn requires proactive, routine inspections of the turf and soil.

Your local Davey lawn expert will inspect your turf and soil to identify signs of a potential grub, insect or pest infestation.

If an infestation has occurred, we will develop a customized plan that targets the grubs and pests in your yard.

But The Work Doesn't Stop There…

We know the importance of routine observation of the turf and soil. This procedure is key to preparing for and eliminating unwanted pests and grubs that can cause severe damage to your lawn and landscape.

Beware Of Ticks

How To Keep Ticks Out Of Your Yard

Ticks are most active in the spring and at the beginning of fall. Immature ticks emerge in late spring and early summer.

No natural, vegetated area can be considered free of ticks, but here are some goals to give these pests fewer places to hide:

  • Take away the places they love – damp, humid areas.
  • Add a border – place a mulch border that’s 4 to 6 feet wide around your property’s perimeter.
  • Clean it up – get rid of brush piles or areas with lots of green debris.

Lawn Grubs

When To Treat For Lawn Grubs

If you see grubs in late summer or early fall, that’s the best time to treat and control them to reduce their damage and decrease the number of beetles that return next year.

Japanese beetle activity during spring and early summer can also be a future indicator. Look for some of these common grub symptoms as it gets closer to fall:

  • Discolored or wilting grass that initially looks like drought damage
  • Spots of dead or dying grass in early spring (April or May) or early fall (August, September or October)
  • Areas of grass that you can easily lift or roll back because the grubs ate the roots
