Too late for grub control?

Q&A

Would it be a complete waste of time to put grub control on my lawn now? Should I just wait until next summer? - Tina -

    Normally, the grubs hatch about late July to mid August. A rescue treatment is most effective when the grubs are small. The bigger they are, the harder it is to eradicate them. Their size and the number of grubs you have would be the determining factor regarding if the treatment would be worthwhile.

    Grubs have not really been a problem this year so probably no need to treat - Dennis
