In addition to mowing, watering, and weeding, keeping your lawn in top shape requires an ongoing watch for the many pests that want to eat your landscape for lunch. Billbugs can be a serious problem for your lawn, and the damage they can cause is similar to that of chinch bugs or grubs. Billbug damage usually appears in late summer, and can appear as small brown spots, irregular mottling or browning of turf.
The most serious lawn insect problem is caused by white grubs, and if you have them the sooner they are controlled the better. Areas of grass that are heavily infested will appear to be off-color and will wilt rapidly in the sun. Additionally, grubs are a major food source for moles, so lawns with heavy grub activity will likely have some mole issues at some point. Together, grubs and moles can devastate a lawn in just a few months.
