June bugs and grubs share a close relationship in the life cycle of certain beetle species, but merely sighting one doesn’t guarantee the presence of the other—at least not right away. June bugs, also called May or June beetles, emerge as adult beetles in the spring or early summer to mate and lay eggs. These eggs subsequently hatch into grub worms, the larvae of these beetles. Grubs sustain themselves by feeding on the roots of grass and other plants, potentially causing harm to lawns and gardens.

Lawn grubs

Although observing June bugs around your property indicates the onset of their egg-laying season, it doesn’t automatically imply the presence of grubs on your lawn. Nevertheless, it is a warning sign that grub season is on the horizon. Grubs typically hatch from eggs deposited by June bugs and other beetles, posing a threat to turf and plants as they consume.

Should you harbor concerns about grubs inflicting damage on your lawn, methods are available to manage them. Employing suitable insecticides or natural control measures can help prevent grub infestations and curb damage to your grass.

Understanding the life cycle of June bugs and grubs enables you to anticipate and address potential issues, yet simply encountering June bugs doesn’t immediately signify a grub problem. Should you have any inquiries or apprehensions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
