In respect to this, how do you treat grubs in Texas?
In south Texas, apply insecticides for white grubs in early- to mid-June. In central and north Texas, the optimal treatment time is early- to mid July. Where grub damage is already evident in lawns and larger grubs are present, use products containing trichlorfon or carbaryl.
Subsequently, question is, when should I treat my yard for grub worms? To kill grubs in the spring or fall, use carbaryl or trichlorfon. Always wear rubber gloves and rubber boots when applying insecticides to turfgrass. Make sure to irrigate the lawn with at least 0.5 inches of water* and allow the grass to dry before allowing anyone or pets into the treated area.
Furthermore, is it too late to treat for grub worms?
Treatment for white grubs in late summer is problematic. It is not an automatic decision to choose to use an insecticide for white grubs. By September white grubs are fully-grown and thus harder to kill. Insecticide treatments after early October are not effective and are not recommended.
Do grub worms kill Bermuda grass?
Milky spore will not kill every white grub, but spores will remain active in your lawn for many years. While white grubs feed on Bermuda grass roots, there are several types of larval worms that feed on Bermuda grass leaf blades. Larval worm damage usually appears in areas of brown or unevenly clipped grass.
