Call Scientific Plant Service for the best Baltimore grub control services.

Scientific Plant Service has successfully provided complete lawn care services to our Baltimore community since 1957. In addition to our tree and shrub care, athletic field maintenance, soil testing, and aquatics services, we offer various pest and wildlife control services. These services include grub control. Grubs can destroy your lawn and leave long-lasting damage that mars your landscape and leaves your grass vulnerable to more damage. If you want to prevent or remove grubs from your property, contact Scientific Plant Service today. Our licensed diagnosticians will inspect and evaluate your turf to determine the need for our Baltimore grub control services. 

What Do Grubs Do To Your Lawn? 

What are grubs, and why should you take steps to keep them off your Baltimore lawn? Grubs are the larval form of the scarab beetle species. The immature grub forms have white caterpillar-like forms with brown heads, often seen curled up into a “C” shape. 

Grubs feast on grassroots and the organic nutrients in the soil. In addition to doing irreparable damage to your root system, they strip the soil of precious nutrients your landscape needs to thrive. 

Grub control services are required every year to work consistently and prevent the arrival of these pests. It is always best to prevent grubs rather than pay to have an infestation eradicated or your lawn repaired. 

Spotting the Signs of a Grub Infestation 

How can you tell when your lawn has grubs present? There are a few indicators you may look for. Fall is the peak grub-feeding season, when you may notice the most damage on your lawn. Look out for these signs of grub problems: 

  • Dead Patches: Oddly-shaped dead spots on your lawn, appearing in late summer or early fall 
  • Spongy Spots: As grubs devour your root systems, soil begins to feel springy and less dense 
  • More Wildlife: Many big creatures love to feast on grubs. Birds, raccoons, skunks, and moles may appear on your lawn to eat up grubs and tear apart your property in the process. 

You can also dig up small spots on your lawn to see if grubs are there. If you see more than five per square foot, you likely have an infestation. Call Scientific Plant Service to address your grub problems. You can count on our degreed and Department of Agriculture-certified representatives to determine the best treatment for your property.
