What is a grub worm? How does it affect your lawn?

Grub worms are the larval stage of various insects and frequently reside right beneath the surface in the topsoil. These little guys cause major damage to your turf.

Here are three reasons to care about grub worms in Texas and their subsequent removal in your lawn.

  • To Keep Your Lawn Alive – If your lawn has a white grub infestation, your yard is at risk of growing so unhealthy that it will die. At first, you’ll notice brown patches…but it’s just a symptom of a greater issue (a complete lack of root system). In fact, your turf could currently be host to hundreds of grub worms right now, which destroy your lawn at the roots, leaving unfortunate (and ugly) brown patches in your grass, before killing it entirely. That’s why, at Emerald Lawns, we apply preventative grub treatment to keep your turf intact.

  • To Save the Pollinators and Earthworms – Many insecticides blanket your yard with harmful chemicals, not only to you, but to the environment. Emerald Lawns desires to preserve honey bees, bumble bees and earthworms for the benefit of your outdoor space, our community and the world.
