Lawn grubs are a very common pest so it’s a good idea to know how to prevent or deal with them as quickly as possible before they cause too much damage. There are two types of lawn grubs – root feeding grubs and surface dwelling grubs.
Traditionally, we see more lawn grub activity during the warmer months of October through to March and the greenest, healthiest lawns are the ones most likely to be attacked. If you have a Couch, Fescue or Kikuyu lawn you do have a greater chance of a grub attack, if you have a buffalo lawn – like Sir Walter – then we normally find that the damage is minimal and the lawn quickly recovers.

How do you treat lawn grubs
If you suspect you have lawn grubs there are treatments available. There are plenty of pest controls available on the market. It’s good to keep in mind that it can take a while to break up the cycle so you want to look for something that is going to remain in the soil, like LSA Grub Guard. With other treatments a second application may be necessary.
If aphids, bugs, caterpillars, heliothis, leafhoppers, grasshoppers, thrips or army worm are a problem in your garden… Grub Guard is the answer.This easy spray-on applicator means you don’t need to handle any granulated chemicals or poisons, or endanger breathing in any residue dusts.
