Lawn Grubs

African Black Beetle

Lawn Grubs | African Black BeetleThe scarab grubs do most of the damage to lawns by feeding on the roots and rhizomes. This will stress the plant and make it difficult for the lawn to access the nutrients and water it requires for healthy growth. Browning of the leaves and a poor condition of the lawn are some symptoms there are beetles present. A good aeration and then an insecticide application such as Sir Walter Pest Control and thorough watering is the only way to rid your lawn of these pests. Always follow label rates and recommendations. Sir Walter Buffalo is a very resistant lawn to these pests and unless high populations are present no action is generally necessary. This treatment is similar for all types of beetles or larvae.

Army Worm

lawn-grubs-armywormThese pests can do serious damage to lawns very quickly. Symptoms include leaf shredding and thinning out of lawns. They are active around the summer months into early autumn. Control is with an insecticide such as Grub Guard applied by spraying the lawn later in the day and leaving it on the leaf, as the insects eat the leaves of the lawn they ingest the insecticide and perish. An application of fertiliser will help with recovery of any affected areas.

Ants

Lawn Grubs AntsAnts can be a nuisance if present in your lawn for people and pets but will only do damage to the lawn in extreme cases. If control is required there are dusts or hose on options that are effective such as Sir Walter Pest Control which being granular is easy to apply or GrubGuard hose on spray. Always follow the label rates and recommendations when applying these products.
