Armyworm Control & Grub Preventative in Winder, GA
Armyworms and grubs are both destructive to lawns and there are many situations where the two can be combined to destroy a yard. Armyworms are voracious eaters and can destroy a lawn in a matter of days.
How to identify armyworms in your yard:
They are light green or tan in their early stages then become dark green or brown. Full-grown larvae can be 2 inches long. They will have green, yellow, or brown stripes down their bodies.
How to identify grubs in your yard:
Grubs are a creamy white color, have six legs near the front of their bodies, and an orange head. They are shaped like a C and look shiny and smooth.
Anyone who has had an armyworm or grub infestation in the Bethlehem, GA area knows that these little critters can quickly destroy any beautiful landscaping you may have once had. Armyworms and grubs feed on grass and leaves and can decimate a lawn in no time. The good news is that these insects are only a problem during the warmer months as they are killed off by the first hard freeze of the year. The reality is that if your property has had any damage from grubs during the previous year, it is more likely to be damaged from grubs again this year. Armyworms will eat the tender leaves of your plants, while grubs will burrow into the roots and eat them.
Legacy Lawn Care in Bethlehem is more than happy to help you with any armyworm or grub problem you may have. The worm and grub treatment service occurs three times during the warm summer months. After this service, there is an approximate two-month residual effect on the application.
