Grub Control in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale, IA & Surrounding Cities

Protect your lawn from grub damage with our preventative or curative grub control treatments.

Grubs can quickly destroy a lawn by silently eating away at the roots of your grass. Many times, they leave no evidence of their existence until the damage has been done. That is why we offer our preventative grub control treatment as an important part of our seven-step lawn care program. If you have a grub problem but didn't sign up for our lawn care package, we also offer our curative treatment for purchase as a stand-alone service. With the grub infestation handled, we can then discuss ways to nurse your lawn back to health with our various lawn care services. We offer our grub control service to residential, commercial, and HOA property owners located in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale, or a surrounding area in Iowa. Give us a call at (515) 654-5447 to schedule our grub control service for your property.


We include our preventative grub control treatment in our fertilization and weed control program.

Professional prepping treatment in bottle in Bondurant, IA.

Our seven-step Standard Turf Health Program includes fertilization treatments, weed control treatments, preventative grub control, and aeration. Our preventative grub control treatment is administered during the third visit of this program. It is timed perfectly to keep any grub eggs from hatching and growing into root-munching pests. With our Standard Turf Health Program, you can be sure that your lawn will be green, strong, lush, and free of grub damage. If by chance some grubs do slip through our preventative treatment, our team will return to administer our curative treatment at no cost to you.

We apply preventative grub control in early June to ensure the best results.


We also offer a curative treatment for existing grub infestations.

If you are not enrolled in our Standard Turf Health Program and you missed preventative grub control this year, don't worry. We understand that grubs are pretty relentless, which is why our team is ready to handle any active infestations. Give us a call at the first sign of an existing grub infestation to schedule our curative grub control treatment. Our curative treatment is offered independently from our other services, meaning you don't have to be part of any of our lawn care programs to take advantage of our curative treatment.


Our lawn care services will nurse your grub-damaged lawn back to health.

Aerator machine with plugs in Bondurant, IA.

Because grubs feed off of the roots of your grass, the damage can sometimes be pretty extensive, depending on how long they were feeding on your lawn. If you wind up with a damaged lawn, our fertilization and aeration lawn care services are a great way to nurse your grass back to health.

  • Fertilization - Providing your grass with the nutrients it needs for healthy growth will help strengthen your lawn and help repair areas of grass that were damaged by grubs.
  • Aeration - Aeration loosens the soil in your lawn so it is easier for the roots of your grass to receive the water, air, and nutrients they need to help repair any damaged areas.
