Lawn Damage in San Jose

Are you experiencing lawn damage in San Jose?  You’re not alone!  It’s a big problem this time every year all over the Santa Clara Valley.  Wild Boar, Raccoons, Skunks, and Possums are digging up lawns all over San Jose in search of food.  Grubs growing in your grass can be the cause of this damage.  What is the solution?

— One solution I don’t recommend is you can cook them up and eat them yourself 😉  <—Just kidding!  Gross!!

Then, once I’ve killed the grubs in your lawn and prevented the damage, I will return in the spring and apply a material that will prevent the problem from happening next summer.

So right now you’re probably asking yourself what the heck are grubs??  Grubs are the larva of several kinds of beetles, including the Japanese Beetle, The June Bug, etc.  In our area most of the grubs causing damage to your grass are probably from the Japanese Beetle.  These beetles lay eggs in your lawn, and when the egg hatches, a larva is the result.  These grubs feed on the roots of your grass, often causing ugly brown spots in your lawn.  Often, animals will be attracted to your lawn to feed on the grubs, which is how the damage in the above photos happens to your lawn at night.

If you have seen this kind of damage to your lawn in San Jose, or other bay area cities, call me at 408-389-4225 so we can talk about how I can help you.  I’m always really glad to help!
