Removing the European Chafer Beetle once and for all.

 

As you drive around town, you’ll notice several yards that have been completely destroyed by crows. It’s that time of year when the chafer beetle grubs start heading towards the earth’s surface to feed on the roots of the grass. The crows pick the grass apart in search of these tasty little grubs. A meal for them is thousands out of your pocket, do you really want to keep this cycle going year after year?

By the end of June the surviving chafer beetles will be adults. They will surface and lay their eggs in the grass and the process starts all over again. The eggs will hatch by late summer and will be growing, feeding and burrowing deep for the winter. They make winter cells to stay warm and usually start making their way to the surface come spring. Here we are now, right in the middle of the lawn destruction season, with an excellent solution. Bella Turf.
