LAWN GRUBS AND THE AFRICAN BLACK BEETLE
THE ONLY NON TOXIC TREATMENT FOR PETS AND PEOPLE AVAILABLE

The greatest problems we have on a regular basis is lawn grubs and the African black beetle. From mid November to the  end of March, early indications of lawn grubs is a red wasp, the Ike Newman wasp hovering above your lawn looking for grubs to lay their eggs in. The African Black Beetles eat the grass roots and early signs are the lawn turning yellowish in colour before die back. Damage by the African Black Beetle is easily misdiagnosed as lack of water and extreme summer heat as the Black Beetle larvae hatch throughout summer 

The Lawnfeed Company's Concorde residual treatment for lawn grubs and black beetle, lasts for up to 6 months and is non toxic, odourless and completely safe for humans and pets. This is by way the best treatment available!!  but for maximum effect treatment for the African black beetle should be in early spring  when the females are pregnant treatment after this cannot kill the African Black Beetle eggs. Treatment needs to be watered in for best results. 

Our Concorde pest treatment is also a residual treatment that protects against grubs for up to 6 months and is pet and people safe this being the only product that effectively works on the market that is safe.

Other options to treat these pests is with a highly toxic treatment that only lasts for 6-8 weeks and nowhere as effective as our product , this toxic treatment is not the way forward and the Lawnfeed Company asks all customers to use our safer treatment.  

This treatment we find is by far the best available on the market but sadly there is no guarantee to make it through the season too many factors are involved. 

Treatment has been highly effective this year and can be a real game changer for troublesome lawns.



Lawn Grubs in a untreated lawn

Classic signs you have grubs apart from the lawn browning off is the Ike Newman wasp hovering above your lawn this parasitic wasp is looking to lay its eggs in the grubs and is a great early indicator that lawn grubs have arrived.

The African Black beetle is becoming a real pest over the years, this invasive beetles numbers explode in the summer during the hatching period, treatment early to mid spring will target this pest while the females are pregnant . Tell tale signs are the lawn turning yellow in patches where the grubs have eaten away the lawn roots this pest is easily misdiagnosed as natural die back of lawns due to hot weather, and the too common saying of the African Black beetle helps to aerate lawns as they burrow through the soil has become a complete myth.
