Avoid the Headache of Grubs With Our Help!
Grubs are a common lawn care issue for many homeowners across North Texas.
These insects are the larvae of many types of beetles that feast on organic matter in your soil and the roots of your grass. This results in major damage to your grass that leaves unsightly brown patches.
Grubs will eventually turn into adult beetles that will emerge from your soil to mate and lay eggs back into your soil, furthering this vicious cycle of damage to your lawn.

Preventative Methods to Avoid Damage
Here at Gecko Green, we offer two types of grub treatments. The first is a preventative treatment and the second is a curative treatment. Keep in mind, every lawn has grubs! Once they no longer feed on the organic material in your soil and move on to the roots of your grass is when they become a problem.
We recommend utilizing our Grub Control Services to protect your lawn all year long. Our highly trained technicians have over 30 years of experience with treating and preventing grubs in lawns across North Texas, and are ready to help you too!
Timing is Key When it Comes to Grub Treatment
So, when is the best time for Gecko Greens Preventative and Curative Treatments?
We can apply our Preventative Treatment anytime from April to June. This will be a liquid blanket treatment across your entire turf, but not in your flowerbeds. Once watered in, this treatment will transition towards the roots of turf grass.
This will kill off any larvae before they are able to mature to the grub stage. If there are any grubworms present, they will attempt to feed on the roots and ingest the product, killing them before damage is done. This can be done annually to ensure your turf continually fights off any potential larvae.
Gecko Greens Curative Treatment is aimed at lawns currently experiencing larger, older grub worms that are already active in the soil. This treatment is available in granular or liquid forms and can be applied at any time of the year. Once watered in, it will control the grubs on contact.
Please note, this treatment will not reverse the damage that has already been done. To prevent further damage to your lawn, we recommend pairing this with our Preventative Treatment for the following spring.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are grubs?
Grubs are the larvae stage of June, May, or Japanese beetles. They have a c-shaped creamy white colored body and a well-defined brown head. Usually appearing during the summer, they live a few inches under the soils surface and feed on the roots of grass.
Should I worry about grubs in my lawn?
Yes! Not only do grubs wreak havoc damaging off your well-maintained lawn, but they also attract other critters to further this damage. Armadillos, moles, raccoons, opossums, and other critters will dig and tunnel through your lawn looking for these grubs to eat.
How can I tell if my lawn has grubs?
Grub damage results in irregularly shaped brown patches, usually in areas of your lawn that receive full sun. These patches are a result of the grass dying from the grubs feeding on its roots.
Use a hoe, or other tool, to cut a couple inches into the sod and begin to peel it back, you should see several grubs in the soil. (If zero grubs are present, the damage may be a result of something else).
Won’t grubs die off in the winter?
Yes and no. A hard winter normally kills off many grubs, but those that remain will hibernate. Once spring arrives, they will wake up and continue feeding on grass roots, soon maturing into adult beetles, restarting the life cycle (and damage on your lawn).
How do I keep grubs out of my lawn?
Preventative options can drastically reduce the damage caused by grub worms. The best time to apply preventative grub worm treatments in Texas is sometime between mid-April and May when the worms are hatching and actively feeding.
Curative treatments are available in liquid or granule form. These treatments are used against the larger, older grub worms that are already active in the soil.
