Grub Control

Stop moles before they destroy your lawn!

Moles can easily be identified by their short, thick body with velvety

fur, pointed snout, front enlarged feet, and rounded sharp claws. 

The symptoms include tunneling under the soil which pushes up the

dirt and sod. When you walk over the soil, the affected areas will feel

very soft. 

The best way to control moles is by getting rid of their food source, which are grubs. By cutting off the food source, moles usually leave the area. Fern's Lawn Care can help remove these pests by putting down a special bait that kills the moles. 

Grub Control

Grubs can destroy a lawn within a short amount of time.

Grubs are the larvae of many kinds of beetles. They are whitish or

grayish in color with brown heads and dark hind parts. They have

three pair of legs, which distinguishes them from the legless billbug

grubs. The adult beetles appear around the garden in late spring or

early summer. 

The symptoms are brown patches, irregular in shape, in late spring

or early fall. Dead patches roll back easily, like a section of carpet.

Birds, moles, raccoons, and skunks may damage a lawn looking for these grubs. 

If your lawn is already infested with grubs, keep in mind that they are insulated by a layer of grass, leaves, thatch, and soil. We apply this control by spraying a liquid treatment.  The grass takes in the insecticide and transfers the product to its roots.  The grubs, who feed on the roots of the grass, then intake the insecticide.

The best time to treat grubs is Mid June to Mid July.
