|You can rake out the bare spots and overseed now to get your lawn back on track. Grubs are deep in the soil during the cold winter and spring but begin to work their way up when the soil warms. They usually aren't near the surface until mid- to late-summer. Grub control applications at that time are most effective. However, there are some time release products on the market that can be applied in late spring or early summer. With these products, the control is there when the grubs appear. Grubex and Bayer Advanced Season Long Grub control are two such products. Only one application should be necessary - apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your lawn and thanks for the compliment!
