What Exactly Are Lawn Grubs?

Lawn grubs, also known as white grubs, are the larvae of many different species of beetles. If you see beetles on or around your trees, shrubs or flowers, there is a good chance you may have a grub problem later in the summer or fall.  These destructive lawn pests are white and in the shape of a ‘C’, that feed on the roots of your grass, causing serious damage. Grub damage is most commonly noticed late August through October, when your grass roots have been eaten away.
