What Your Neighbors Are Saying

RDS has done a great job on our lawn. In just one year we have seen a vast improvement. Knowing that it takes time and a few years of treatment to see the best results, we are very happy with the results so far. Also the pest treatment allows us to be in the yard without the worry of mosquitos and other pests. Highly recommend.

- Brad Huffstetler

RDS is best in class. I have been using the RDS team for over a decade to treat, aerate and seed my lawn. It takes time, but Aaron's formula for weed control and fertilization has my grass in tip top shape. I would highly recommend RDS to anyone wanting to have the nicest lawn in their neighborhood.

- Jason Barger

These guys are awesome. Our lawn (and many in our community) look great...like a well manicured golf course. We have had a great experience with them and they have almost repaired the damage that was caused by one of their competitors. They are responsive to concerns and take ownership of their products and procedures. They are a local company and know the soil very well.

Identifying An Infestation

Lawns that utilize mixtures of grasses, such as mixing cool-season grass with warm-season grass, are less likely to show signs of grub infestation, though it is possible. Lawns with only one type of grass are more susceptible to an infestation and should be checked for signs regularly. Small mounds of soil piling up on your lawn is the easiest way to identify a potential problem. Reach down and press your hand into the soil. If the turf feels spongy or if you can easily peel it back, there is a good chance you have an infestation. Are you seeing more and more critters, such as moles and raccoons, poking around in your yard? Since these types of animals love to feast on grubs, this could be another sign that you are in need of our grub control services. 

Types Of Grubs

While there are many types of grubs, there are a select few species that are more common to Charlotte and the surrounding area. Some of the most common grubs you are likely to encounter are the following:


These grubs are recognizable by their sleek bodies and tiny heads. They will often have a thick, dark band along the top of their bodies. The damage they cause is often confused with common drought stress, as they are known to create spots of brown or yellow grass on your lawn that resemble the effects of drought. A good way to tell the difference is to examine the blades of grass in the area. If you notice the tips of the grass have been chewed on or chewed through, you most likely have armyworms. 

Chinch Bugs

In larva form, you will see a white c-shaped grub, with a tan to orange head and six legs. In adult form, the bugs have black oval-shaped bodies, with white wings overlapping on their backs. These grubs like the hotter, late-summer temperatures, and they feed on the liquid inside blades of grass by piercing the blade and sucking out the liquid. This process causes your grass to turn yellow and resemble dead grass. 

Japanese Beetles and June Bugs

The larvae of these bugs is the most common type of grub to Charlotte. Their appearance in larva form is a crescent-shaped white body, with an orange head and a darker color at the opposite end of the body. These grubs are most active during August, and they feed on the roots of the grass. If you feel the previously mentioned spongy soil in your lawn, these grubs are usually the culprit!
