About this service

Grub & Cranefly Control

Protect your lawn from the devastating effects of grub infestation with Seasonal Lawncare’s expert solutions. Our proactive approach ensures your lawn remains healthy and vibrant, free from the damage caused by these destructive pests.

What Are Grubs?

Grubs are the larvae of Japanese and June beetles. During the late spring and early summer, these beetles will mature from their larvae stage and feed on your trees and shrubs at night. They return to the ground to lay their eggs. When the grubs hatch they immediately start to feed on organic matter, causing extensive damage to the roots of your grass. 

Signs of a Grub Problem

  • Dead or brown patches of grass
  • Turf can roll up like a carpet
  • Signs of skunks, moles, or larger pests digging up areas of your lawn
  • Flocks of birds feeding in a particular area 

Grubs Aren’t the Only Thing to Worry About

Grubs are the snack of choice for many different animals. When you have a grub problem these animals will come out in droves, treating your yard like an all-you-can-eat buffet.

A classic sign of a grub infestation is when you start to see mounds of earth on your grass. This is mole activity and they are here to feed on the grubs living in your yard. These tiny mammals can cause a tremendous amount of damage. Skunks, birds, and raccoons will also peck, scratch, and dig up your yard searching for those tasty grubs, destroying your lawn in the process.

It can be very hard to tell if you have a grub problem until the signs present themselves, but by that time it may be too late. The best way to prevent grubs and the other animals that feed on them from devastating your yard is to prevent them from ever establishing themselves.

Seasonal Lawncare’s grub control program is designed to eliminate grubs early and to prevent them from ever becoming a problem. We want to give you the peace of mind knowing that your turf is safe above ground and below.

Here are some answers to the questions we hear the most.

You will begin to notice some cupping and curling of the weeds within two to three days. It will take approximately four weeks for your weeds to disappear completely.

All fertilizers will need to be watered. It’s also helpful to water after an application of insect control as this will water it into the thatch and root zone where insects like to call home. Pre-emergent crabgrass control works best when watered in. Liquid weed controls, once dried, should be fine. Once a liquid application is dry, the weed control has entered the weed and has already begun to take effect. Remember, our treatment programs are guaranteed to work so, if you should ever have a concern, please contact our office.

Waiting 24-48 hours before mowing will give you the best results.

Returning clippings evenly to the lawn (no heavy clumping) returns valuable nutrients to the lawn.

It is recommended that people and pets stay off the lawn until the treatment is dryDepending on weather could be as soon as an hour. NYS would prefer you limit your activity for 24 hours.

Seasonal Lawncare’s products are safer than many household cleaners, offering a cost-effective alternative to DIY methods. Once dry, pets can safely resume normal activities, providing peace of mind.

No. The technician will leave an invoice along with any important information and/or instructions regarding your treatment, such as watering, mowing, observations and concerns.

Payment is due upon receipt of the treatment and invoice (unless you prepaid at the beginning of the season). You have 30 days to pay to avoid scheduling delays. After 30 days a minimum late charge of $12 will be added to your account.

Absolutely! Our treatment programs come with guaranteed results. If you ever have a concern, a Seasonal Lawncare manager is available to address the concern at no charge – typically 24 to 48 hours after receiving the call.

With a fertilizer or insect treatment, seeding can be done immediately. Pre- and post-emergent weed treatments will restrict seeding for 3 to 12 weeks, according to label instructions.

Yes, we do! Our organic program has the same timing as our non-organic program. We use the highest-quality organic-based fertilizer (please note that organic fertilizers do not kill weeds). Organic applications are applied in liquid and granular form at the same price as our non-organic programs. Please contact us for more information.
