Grub Control Services in Sioux Falls, SD, Sioux City, IA & Surrounding Cities in Southern South Dakota

We apply our preventative grub control treatment in the late spring to guard your lawn against irreversible damage from these lawn pests.

Grubs found in dark soil near %%ia-targetarea5full%%.

You do not want grubs to infiltrate your lawn. These white, C-shaped pests have copper-brown heads and are the larval form of both beetles and billbugs. Grubs can completely destroy your grass by feeding on individual blades and subsurface root systems. But our team can help stop that from happening.

At Sharp Lawn Care, we provide professional grub control services for residential, commercial, and HOA property owners in Sioux Falls, SD, Sioux City, IA, and surrounding cities in southern South Dakota. We apply our preventative grub control treatment in the late spring to guard your lawn against irreversible damage. We can also perform curative treatments should you notice signs of grub damage later in the summer. Our grub control services are available as part of our Sharp Plus Lawn Care Package or Sharp Premium Lawn Care Package.


When do we treat your lawn for grubs?

We apply our preventative grub control treatments in the late spring, between May 20 and June 20, before beetles and billbugs lay eggs in your soil in early July. Treating your lawn for grubs in the late spring proactively combats grub development so they don't become a problem and harm your grass down the road.

If you do not preventatively treat your lawn for grubs, we can perform curative treatments later in the summer once you notice signs of damage. While our curative treatments protect your lawn from further destruction, they will not reverse existing damage. That's why we stress the importance of preventative grub control treatments.

Our grub control treatments utilize a premium liquid insecticide that is safe, long-lasting, and highly effective.


How do we offer our grub control services?

We offer our grub control services as part of our Sharp Plus Lawn Care Package and Sharp Premium Lawn Care Package. A breakdown of these 2 packages follows:

  • Sharp Plus Package: A 9-step program that includes slow-release and stabilized fertilization, pre-emergent and targeted weed control, 2 eco-friendly insecticide treatments, a winterizer treatment and, of course, grub prevention and control.
  • Sharp Premium Package: A 12-step program that features slow-release and stabilized fertilization, pre-emergent and targeted weed control, 5 eco-friendly insecticide treatments, a winterizer treatment, free spot-spraying and, yes, grub prevention and control.

Both packages are excellent options that yield transformative results for our clients. Notably, our Sharp Plus Package gives you the option to bypass the 2 eco-friendly insecticide treatments if you do not want those performed. No services can be subtracted or added to our Sharp Premium Package.

Road Map to a Beautiful Lawn

Lawn Road Map: Step One

Aeration is the First Step

Aeration removes soil cores that can prevent sunlight, water, and nutrients from penetrating the root structure. It promotes lush, healthy grass that’s a great defense against weeds and insect pests. This should be repeated every spring and fall. Learn more about aeration.

Lawn Road Map: Step Two

Fertilization & Weed Control Strengthen Your Lawn

Throughout the season, fertilization and weed control strengthens your grass and kills weeds, which opens the area for more grass to grow once planted in the fall. This should be repeated every season—more on fertilization and weed control.

Lawn Road Map: Step Three

Overseeding Promotes New Growth

In fall, the weeds are under control, the pests are mostly gone, and there are still several weeks of temperatures and conditions ideal for growth. That makes it the only perfect time for overseeding so that you get great new growth ahead of winter and are ready to go the next spring. One other thing to mention is the type of grass seed, which is the most important thing to consider. Choosing the correct seed will give your lawn a better growth habit and improve wear, heat, and drought tolerance. This should be done every fall until thick and then every 3-5 years, or as needed. Get the full story on fall seeding.

Lawn Road Map: Step Four

Keep Your Grass at the Proper Height

Keeping your grass at the proper height for the season has two benefits: it provides shade for the roots during the hotter months and reduces other stresses that can cause damage. During spring and fall, keep it at 3 ½ to 4 inches; go up to 4 ½ inches during the summer. Regardless of length, never cut more than 40% off at once. How to do mowing right.

Lawn Road Map: Step Five

The Right Amount of Water

Adequately water, but don’t overwater. Water 2 or 3 days each week, with an inch per week being the average in spring and fall and up to 2 inches when it gets hotter in the summer. Save water and money by watering early in the morning before evaporation kicks in—more watering tips here.

Lawn Road Map: Step Six

Enjoy Your Beautiful Lawn!

This road map to a beautiful lawn is really a formula we’ve developed and honed for nearly 2 decades now. Working together with you, we’ll follow this plan, and you’ll see a beautiful lawn in just 1-2 seasons. Better yet, we’ll keep it that way!
