Often skunks and other small animals will pull back the turf to feed on grubs in the spring and fall.  This secondary damage to your lawn, as well as flocks of starlings and blackbirds feeding on the lawn, are signs of a grub infestation.  If you have any of these natural predators digging at your grass, check for white grubs, many people notice these indicators first.

Do you have large patches of dead grass?
Lawn grubs are the larval stage of June Bugs, Japanese Beetles, European Chafer, Crane fly etc.  Grubs feed on the roots of many plants, but prefer the fibrous roots of lawn grass.  As the roots are destroyed, turf will wilt and turn brown.  Affected areas will feel soft and spongy to walk on and turf in these spots can be lifted up with ease.  Damage is most severe in the spring and fall when moisture levels in soil are high.

What do I do?
Beneficial Nematodes need to be applied each spring and fall for 4 consecutive years to completely eradicate grubs from your lawn.  Once they leave your yard they never go very far, most likely they moved into your neighbours yard and if they don’t treat with nematodes it will only be a matter of time before they start to see similar damage.  Once grubs have landed in your neighborhood it’s next to impossible to get rid of them completely because not everyone takes care of their lawn.  Beneficial Nematodes will need to be re-applied every fall to keep the grubs from returning to feed on your lawn.

Nature’s Image landscape is your full service all-natural lawn care company.  Not sure what to do this season?  There are many factors involved in maintaining a thick green lawn.  Let me show how we can help.

Aeration ~ $45 per visit minimum
De-thatching ~ $125 per man-hour includes disposal

Nature’s Image uses top quality products that you can count on.  If you are repairing a brown patch or need to replace your entire lawn we can help you make the right decision.

WHAT IS A GRUB?
A Grub is the larva stage of a Japanese Beetle and June Bug that live in the lawn and feed on the grass roots for up to 8 months before the come out of the ground and cause havoc on our gardens.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE GRUBS?
There are a few indications that you can look for in your yard to determine if you have a grub problem. First is look for brown dead Natures Image Landscape London ontario, Landscape London, garden centres London ontario, stamped concrete London ontario stamped concrete, lawn maintenance London,  snow clearing services London ontario, stamped conctrete, concrete stamped, patterned concrete London ontairo stamped concrete, landscape contractors London ontario, lawn care London ontario, grass cutting London ontario, lawn maintenance, grub control London ontario bug control,  landscape design, garden and landscape contractors London ontario, London landscape supply, London Ontario Mulch 3way  2way soil screened flagstone decorative stone pavers interlock retaining walls,  pond gardens London ontario pond supplies,  salt water pools, salt water ponds,  sand armour topsoil fertilizer grass seed sod delivery ground aggregate screenings,  peastone,  material calculator,  gravel deliverly London ontairo,  residential cheap homedepot home depot lowes rona fishers topsoil,  try recycling,  TLC for your lawn London ontario by Natures Image Landscape, landscaping supplies  London Ontario, mulches, gravel, topsoil, fertilizers, decorative stone, paving stone  natural stone London ontario, London Landscape, stamped concrete services, natures Image Landscaping London ontario Landscape services, lawn maintenance services london ontario lawn and grass cutting services, snow removal london ontairo snow removal, lawn and grub care london ontario landscape services london landscapers, Old South Lawn Garden landscape Construction full-service landscaping construction business London, Ontario, herb gardens, landscaping projects, design/build services & grounds management, landscape design, tree services, water features, waterfalls, interlocking patio paving pond landscaping london ontario, natures image landscaping London ontario, water gardening, ponds, pumps, pond supply, fish, garden, liner, water pond, fountains, landscaping, natural stones, coy pond, certified poind installers London ontario, patches on the lawn and where the grass will pull up easily
because it does'nt’t have any roots, grubs feed on grass roots. Next you’ll find skunks or raccoons feeding on your lawn, they dig holes in the lawn because they can smell grubs and the want to eat them. These animals can cause more damage to the lawn than the grub can, even crows like them and can leave holes all over your lawn trying to eat them.  It will be a matter of time before your lawn is overrun with weeds as parts of your lawn die and grass will no longer grow there.

HOW DO I GET RID OF GRUBS?
The most effective method is to use beneficial nematodes, they are a type of good grub that will search and destroy all the bad grubs and over 250 other soil dwelling insects that cause harm to our lawn and gardens.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REMOVE GRUBS FROM MY LAWN?
It will always depend on a few factors. How big is your lawn? How bad is your grub damage?
On average it takes 3 to 4 years of applying nematodes in the Spring & Fall to push them out of your lawn and into your neighbours. After that is done you will have to make a nematode application as a part of your Fall maintenance. When grubs show up in a neighbourhood the always stay because some people on your street will not use nematodes because they don’t believe they work or don’t have the time or money to do anything and some just don’t care. You’ll never know if on a windy day a Japanese Beetle flew into your backyard and decided to lay some eggs so for that reason you should always apply nematodes in the Fall to prevent the damage over winter.

WHAT CAN I DO TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE TO MY LAWN?
Depending on the size of area that is damaged some home owners prefer to sod an area where others may just use grass seed to fill in the bare spots.  Most will seed their lawn in the Spring & Fall to repair the damage, after 3 or 4 years of nematodes & over seeding each season you will improve the health & overall appearance.  If you have grubs in your lawn there is no amount of money that you can spend on grass seed and fertilizers that will grow you a beautiful lawn unless you apply nematodes because they feed on grass roots and you will just continue to feed grubs and never see improvements in your lawn.

WHEN CAN I APPLY NEMATODES?
In the Spring we need to wait for the soil temperature (not the outside air) to reach 10 degrees, nematodes can’t live in soil that’s too cold.  The best time to plan is the week around the May 24 long weekend, traditionally the lawn is warm enough.  The second application should be done just after the Labour Day long weekend, we have shorter days and cooler nights the ideal conditions for an application.  Some will do them in mid August but you must be prepared to apply a lot of water to your lawn for those 3 days after or your money will be wasted.

CAN YOU PUT NEMATODES ON DURING THE DAY?
NO NO NO they will die if exposed to direct sunlight. They must go on at dusk or later, no chance of sunlight reaching the lawn.  I will not apply them on a cloudy day like some other companies because the risk of the sun coming out before the sun goes down is too great.

CAN I WALK ON THE LAWN?
Yes you can walk on the lawn in your bare feet as well as children & pets.  It’s completely safe and the nematodes are so small that they are microscopic and you cannot see them in the lawn.

IF IT RAINS DO I STILL NEED TO WATER?
YES PLEASE. It’s great when Mother Nature can help us out but more often than not we don’t see rainstorms that produce the amount of water we really need to apply the nematodes properly.  If it rains 30 mm plus that night then you’d be ok but rains like that are rare. If we have a torrential rainstorm for 3 or 4 days in a row that would be the only time you wouldn't’t need to water.

WHAT IF IT RAINS REALLY HEAVY, WILL IT DROWN THE NEMATODES?
No, you can never have too much water when applying nematodes. We hope that it rains when we are out, as it will help with the application.  The more water on the lawn will push down into the soil and force the grubs to the surface; the nematodes will search & destroy all the grubs and other soil dwelling insects until there is none left.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE YOUR STAFF ARRIVE?
Water, water, water!! The entire lawn should be soaking wet, it would be ideal if we could apply them in the rain but we can’t always get that lucky.  Scheduling will be done in advance to ensure that the homeowner is available to water the lawn properly. Please leave you garden hose out for the staff, if it does not reach the entire property our staff will have extra hose with them but please let them know at the time of scheduling that you might need some extra hose.

HOW MUCH WATER DO I NEED TO APPLY AFTER YOUR DONE?
It is very important for the homeowner to water properly for the best results. The next 3 consecutive mornings before the sun comes up if that’s possible. The lawn should have each area that is covered by your sprinkler for 1 hour.  It is very important that your lawn does not dry out during the hottest part of the day, it must stay wet or the nematodes will dry out and die. After the 3rd morning the nematodes have soaked far enough down into the soil where they will stay wet until they are done eating the bad bugs and then they too will die.

DO I HAVE TO BE HOME OR AWAKE WHEN YOUR STAFF COME?
If there is a water faucet on the outside of your home that is turned on, our staff will not need your assistants if you’re not available.  If your water hooks up inside your garage we will set up that home as a first call for the evening.  Some clients like to chat with the staff and learn more about what we are doing and why, if we don’t have the answer we can always find it for you.

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MANY NEMATODES ARE BEING APPLIED?
Nature’s Image purchases individual packs from the Ontario Grower Supply. 
10 Million Pack Covers 2,000 – 3,000 square feet      
25 Million Pack Covers 5,000 – 7,500 square feet
50 Million Pack Covers 10,000 – 15,000 square feet
100 Million Pack Covers (1/2 acres) 18,000 – 20,000 square feet
200 Million Pack Covers 1 acre – 44,000 square feet32
500 Million Pack Covers 2 acres – 88,000 square feet

Each Nature’s Image client will receive an individual package based on the square footage of the entire lawn area. We do NOT use a large tank truck and spray multiple homes from the same tank.  Our trained staff will come to your home at dusk or after dark and apply the nematodes using an applicator that attaches to a standard garden hose.
