Grubs

7 posts in this topic

Had a beautifull lawn until last year. Use the 4 step program to take care during year, water regularly, and last year the grubs got me, nasty little devils. At first I thought I had burnt the grass, but after talking with a few friends, I find that it was grubs. I went to get Grub killer, but it says to apply in late june to mid july. Can I still apply now or do I wait, and do I apply every year to maintain or is there something else to rid myself of these lawn destroying pests and keep them gone. Thanks in advance for responses.

I cant remember the exact time to treat for grubs but i think you want to do this from mid to late July. That is when the grubs feeds the most.

A product called Merit is the best product for grub control. Mach 2 is another that works well.

Merit is good. However we use a product called Symitar. We kinda watch for alot of bird activity on the tees, fairways and greens. One way to find out if you do have grub prolems is to cut off the bottom of a coffee can and sink it in the ground about 4 inches, pour alittle dish washing soap, Dawn, etc, some water that'll really bring em to the surface in short order for identifiication. Regardless of what a guy uses...."FOLLOW THE LABEL"!!!! Herbicide application is NOT the idea of "if a little is good alot is better". I'm wondering if your problem might be cut worms.

There's another easy way to check if it's grubs. If the grass lifts up like carpet, it's grubs. However, I kinda doubt it is grubs. I look at about 4-5,000 lawns a year, and I might see a dozen lawns a year that actually have a grub problem. It could be cut worms, sod webworms, and a host of other problems. If I were you, I'd have a professional come and look at it. Most will do a free inspection for ya.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
