This month’s advice focuses on weed and pest control, because now is the time of year when these tasks become most challenging.
Control Lawn Grubs
If you notice dead patches of grass that you can peel up like carpet, you might have lawn grubs. These destructive pests are white, c-shaped, and can grow as big as the size of a quarter. They like to feast on soil and grass roots and damage your beautiful lawn. To get rid of them, it’s important to kill the grubs before they hatch, which is usually in the middle of summer. First, apply a preventative grub control killer, then water the area immediately to activate the product. If it’s late summer and they’ve already hatched, use a product that kills on contact.
Manage Weed Control
If you notice a couple of weeds in your grass, chances are there are more to come. They multiply quickly, and before you know it, your whole lawn has been infected. Larger weeds can be removed by hand, but if the weeds have started to take over your entire yard, you’ll need a post-emergent weed killer. Make sure to get a selective, broad-leaf herbicide, which targets weeds without damaging the grass.
