Grub Control Underway

Beetles (especially Japanese beetles) are everywhere now and soon they will be laying eggs.  These eggs will hatch into grubs (the larval stage of the adult beetle) and quite possibly damage the turf.  If they don't damage the turf themselves, the raccoons and skunks will dig up the turf looking for them.  This is as bad, if not worse, than the actual damage from the grub.  To help prevent this problem from happening we apply a safe and commonly used product to the entire course.  We must irrigate enough to get the product through the thatch layer which may cause some areas to be a little soft.
