Armyworm and Grub Control in Atlanta
By Simply Green Lawn Care

Armyworms and grub worms are sneaky little creatures that creep into your lawn, breed quickly, then overtake both your lawn and landscape. Simply Green offers prevention and curative programs for armyworms and grub worms to keep them from becoming a problem.


Insecticide Prevention

The best way to keep your yard free of both armyworms and grub worms is to take preventative measures. Simply Green’s insecticide prevention program involves applying a once-per-year armyworm treatment of Acelpryn Insecticide in the spring to guarantee grub worms and armyworms avoid your lawn all season long.


Grub Worm Curative Treatments

Are Grubs already a problem? Simply Green has the cure. Insecticide treatment will eliminate a current grub population and control new grubs from nesting for 28 days. If reinfestation occurs, the lawn will need to be treated again. 

Call Simply Green experts today to schedule an evaluation and treatment plan.

Fertilization may be necessary to help restore a lawn that has suffered damage from these common lawn insects.

Grub worms are a type of beetle that is usually white or cream-colored with a distinct C-shape. These insects have three pairs of legs near their head, and their bodies are slightly curved. Grub worms vary in size, with Japanese beetle grubs being the largest, reaching up to one inch long.


Armyworm Curative Treatments

Are Armyworms already taking over your lawn? After they have been identified, Simply Green can apply treatment that will eliminate the current population and provide 14 days of guaranteed control. If the Armyworms return after that, treat again.

There are several treatment options, so call your Simply Green experts for an evaluation and treatment plan.

Armyworms can completely decimate a lawn in as little as two days—their eating habits are that of a small army, hence the name—so call as soon as you see even just one worm.

Armyworms are caterpillars that eventually become moths through metamorphosis. 

Usually homeowners will see Armyworms in the caterpillar stage of their development. This is the time to get them under control. 

Army worm lawn damage best describes what damage these voracious feeders can do in little time before going into the chrysalis stage. Act quickly to avoid damage to your lawn.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
