Grubs. We don't know a single Illinois commercial property manager who likes them.
These white, fat worms live in the soil eating away at our grass roots, leaving brown, unattractive patches in their midst that in some cases can pull right up like a carpet. Not only can these nasty Chicagoland pests damage commercial lawns, but their presence also invites other unwelcome wildlife that come in to cause additional destruction digging up the lawn in their search of grubs as treats, such as raccoons.
While white grubs come in a variety of forms, such as May or June beetles, most know them as the larvae of Japanese beetles, which lay their eggs in midsummer in sunny areas of turfgrass.
Fortunately, with a little know-how and planning from your trusty lawn care professional, white grubs can be less of a problem in your commercial landscape.
