The key to success with white grubs is identifying if they are present before any turf damage is visible. Monitoring early and often is best practice. If white grub infestations are suspected in a specific area or have been a problem in the past, it is recommended to monitor these areas first. If grubs have not been a problem in the past it is best practice to monitor several random areas across the lawn in the front and back.

2 Min
