White grubs are beetle larvae that destroy your lawn and grass.

Lawn severally damaged by a grub infestation at a property in the Lehigh Valley area.

White grubs are larvae from different types of beetles such as Japanese beetles, Junebugs, or European chafers. These small C-shaped insects can cause damage to grass and will eventually turn into adult beetles that will lay more eggs, continuing the cycle.

When white grubs hatch in your lawn, they immediately begin feeding on the roots of your grass, eventually destroying your lawn. Usually, these eggs hatch in mid to late summer. Grubs remain below the soil and you won't know they are there until common signs begin to show, these signs include:

  • Brown patches in the grass
  • The grass feels like a sponge when touched
  • Dead grass rolls up like a carpet
  • Visible grubs in the soil after grass has been removed
  • Animals like raccoons, armadillos, moles,and skunks rooting in your grass

Peak white grub season in Emmaus, PA is during the months of August, September, and October.


We keep grubs out of your lawn with preventative and post-emergent grub control treatments.

Starting in June, our team will come to your property to apply a preventative lawn treatment to control grubs. This application passes through to the soil, working to stop grub invasions before they start. Since grubs hatch in mid to late summer, the preventative should help eliminate them.

While preventative treatments are the most effective for newly-hatched grubs, they will not help in the other stages of a grub's life. Curative, or post-emergent grub control treatments, are most effective from September through May. We apply these to kill off grubs in all stages.

At Green Turf Care, our providers have researched grub control products extensively and know which ones work the best. We use DyLOX granular treatments for preventative treatments and DuoCide insect control for a curative grub application.

After grub control is administered, it's vital to properly water the treatment into the lawn and soil. Our lawn care experts will consult with you about the correct amount of water to use.
