How to Get Rid of Grubs

Here's How to De-Grub Your Lawn:
  • First, look for grubs. They look like cooked macaroni. If you have brown grass patches, look for pencil-thin holes on the soil surface. Or lift the sod to see if any are just beneath the surface. Look for them at night, on top of the soil.
  • Choose a product that works for you. Granular products are easy to apply with your drop spreader. Liquid base or soluble crystals you mix and apply are sprayed onto the lawn.
  • Apply to a dry lawn. Make sure sprinklers are turned off.
  • Adjust your spreader to the application rate recommended on the package.
  • Wear safety glasses and a face mask to protect against granule dust.
  • Fill the hopper with grub killer.
  • Carefully apply grub killer to the entire lawn.
  • Water heavily to activate the product, but do not allow water to run off into other areas.
  • Keep kids and pets off the lawn until the grass has dried.
  • Return leftover grub killer to the original container and store in a cool, dry place.
