White grubs are common pests of lawns and turf grasses in Ontario. The white grubs are the larval stage of scarab beetles (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae), which feed on the roots of grasses and other plants. This feeding results in the wilting and death of the grass in irregular shaped patches on the lawn. The wilted grass can be easily pulled free due to the destruction of the root system. Secondary damage may occur due to animals such as skunks, raccoons, and other small mammals digging up the lawn to feed on the grubs. The damage to lawns resulting from white grub infestations can be quite severe.WSS uses an all natural Benefecial Nematode to diminish the white grub population.This form of treatment is non toxic and safe for pets and children.The proper application of this treatment is critical to its success. A complete lawn renovation may be necessary in certain cases where more than 50% of the lawn has been damaged or has an extensive weed population or any number of other issues like poor topsoil or even no topsoil !( we see this a lot). WSS believes in lawn renovations because it is not a band-aid solution but rather a permanent fix. Please refer to our gallery pictures to see examples of the successful Lawn Renovations WSS has completed.
