Mating season is here for this Green June Beetle!
Mating season is here for this Green June Beetle! Green June Beetles, Chafers, Japanese Beetles and May or June Beetles have started laying their eggs in the soil. Chafers Beetles, Japanese Beetles and May/June Beetles eggs grow into grubs. Grubs feed on a mixture of plant roots and organic matter in the soil. The image above shows an adult Green June Beetle in a Bermuda lawn. Beetles tunnel into the turf and lay their eggs. Depending on the type of Beetle the eggs hatch anywhere between 10-15 days. The grubs are nocturnal feeders that eat organic matter and roots. White grubs grow quickly, reaching full size by late August. Damage to turf is heaviest in September and October. Grubs over winter are deep in the soil, returning to the surface in the spring to feed before pupating a few inches deep in the soil, then the cycle starts over. Depending on the type of Beetle, they feed and damage ornamental trees and shrubs.
Here at Simply Green we offer two types of grub treatments: preventative ans curative. Preventative grub treatment is for lawns that have had grub issues in the past and want to insure they will not be back. Curative is for lawns that currently have grubs damaging the lawn! We have included more images below showing grub damage!
This is what grub damage looks like on Bermuda. This was taken before the sod was dug up to check for grubs.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
