Grub worms or white grubs are the larvae of June Beetles and have a 3 year life cycle. In early summer, into fall, grubs will begin feeding on a lawn's root system causing the lawn to die if not taken care of. You will notice brown dry spots that appear wilted or lacking water, but upon closer inspection you’ll notice it’s not because of a lack of water.
Another sign is when turf can be rolled up like sod from the root system being destroyed and/or animals digging holes into the lawn looking for the grubs for an easy meal. You don’t have to look too deep into the soil to find these pesky grubs, usually only 1-2 inches into the soil.
Late summer - early fall is when grubs are at their highest population and is the best time to control them. As mentioned earlier grubs have a 3 year life cycle so there is always different generations of grubs in the soil so a preventative late spring application is also recommended the following year.
