Fall Pests: Grubs

Fall Pests: Grubs:  Lawn Care: Watch out for white grubs!

Grubs are a common problem at this time of year. White grubs, as they are commonly referred to, derive from a beetle and are actually small white larvae. They live in the soil and feed on the roots of your grass. This causes your turf to become thin and loose, and therefore it pulls up very easily.

Fall is the optimum time to apply a balanced fertilizer to prepare for winter. This will help alleviate various stresses associated with the cooler months. It is also a good time to plant winter annuals such as Impatiens, Geraniums, Begonias, Petunias, and Snapdragon.

Pruning your flowering ornamentals at this time of year is not recommended because the open wounds could encourage cold damage, as well as making it difficult for the plant to recover in time for the spring bloom. However, shaping and selective pruning of your larger trees and non-flowering ornamentals can still be done at this time.
