Grubs are the larval stage of beetles. There are many types of grubs but the ones which live in the dirt under grass are most likely Japanese Beetle, June Beetle, MayBeetle, Black Turfgrass, Asiatic Garden or some other regional beetle which lays eggs whose larva feed on plants. Grubs live just under grass, usually6 inches to a few feet down, all of which depends on their species, food supplies and the time of year. Grub damage is by far the most common type ofdamage sustained in turf grass throughout the United States . Early detectionwill give you the upper hand when combating thispest. Treating the yard for grub control 3-4 times a year can help to keep the yard and home free of just about any pest! That’s right.

No, not the British rock invasion you were hoping for, but the Japanese kind that can invade and destroy your landscaping. Pest management and control can be very involved, time consuming & complicated. Identification, timing, control methods, weather monitoring, application rates & neighbor notification of use, are all components that you need to consider when trying to manage & control pests.
Proper Tree Staking Our Newest Products
The tree staking system that I prefer to use is called “Stake-It-Easy”. As it’s name suggests, the stakes are easy to install and the kit comes completely assembled with all the parts you need to properly stake a small tree or shrub (up to 1.5” in caliper/diameter). The easy to adjust and tie nylon rope gets fed through the hole in the custom designed stake. The rubber branch protectors are the only part touching the stem or branches of your tree which will help prevent scaring or rubbing. A hammer is all you need to pound the stakes securely into the ground.
