The treatments are administered over a period of time with the schedule being as follows:
- The 1st treatment will be applied early in Spring before it gets warmer which is when bugs multiply and begin home invasions
- The 2nd and 3rd treatments will be made during Summer as this is when bug populations reach their peak thus requiring more attention
- The 4th and final treatment will be made in the Fall, where cooler temperatures reduce insect populations leading into Winter when bug populations are lowest

Turf Damaging Insects
Unlimited Landscaping can protect your lawn from turf damaging insects like Army Worms. Spittle Bugs, Grubs and More. Grubs are the most severe here in Georgia. Grubs can cause severe damage to turfgrass they are the larvae of several species of beetles but the most common here in is the Japanese beetle grub. Their life cycle takes one year to complete. The beetles emerge from the soil in late June/early July and feed on trees and shrubs. During July and into early August, they mate and lay eggs in the soil. The eggs hatch in August and begin feeding on turfgrass roots, especially when there is adequate soil moisture. During dry Julys and Augusts, grub populations are reduced in unirrigated turf. They feed until early October, and then they burrow down in the soil to overwinter. They then move to the surface in the spring and will feed for a few weeks before pupating and then emerging and adults once again. Most grub damage occurs in September and early October. The optimal time to prevent grubs is from late April through mid-July. Please sign up for our grub control option to avoid the risk of grub damage. Curative treatments in August through October are less effective and require immediate irrigation for effective results. The image shows what grub damage looks like in late summer/early fall.
