The presence of moles does not necessarily mean there are grubs in the turfgrass. The moles’ main food source is earthworms. The grubs are active only at certain times of the year, and the moles will feed on them if they are an available food source.
Grubs are the larvae stage in the life cycle of a beetle. Damage occurs when the grubs feed on the root system of the turfgrass, causing the grass to die. A preventive grub control applied yearly will protect your investment in your lawn from the damage these insects cause.
There are numerous methods of trying to control moles. Traps, baits and repellants are currently being used. We suggest using traps, locating the traps where there are active tunnels, and using bait that is normally used for mice, such as peanut butter. There are mole repellants available at lawn and garden stores and may give you some success.
The materials which are used for lawn applications are of a very low toxicity and are registered and used in strict compliance to labeled instructions. They are applied by licensed technicians in accordance with state and local regulations.
If granular fertilizer is used, you may go on the lawn immediately after the application. If liquid weed control is used, allow the material to dry on the grass before children and pets are allowed on it. Drying time will vary with weather conditions.
Lime helps modify the acidity in the soil and allows the grass to absorb and use fertilizers more efficiently. It also supplies calcium to the grass, which is an important nutrient for the photosynthesis process. Typical soils in this area are acidic, and applying lime yearly would be beneficial.

Fertilizing in the spring basically enhances top growth that causes excessive pruning. A fall fertilizer supplies balanced macro and micro nutrients needed for adequate food storage in preparation for winter. It also provides vital root growth. This leads to healthy and vigorous plants. More Info.
The roots of the trees are competing with the grass for water and nutrients, leaving the grass with an inadequate supply of each. Also, the grass requires a period of direct sunlight in order to grow properly. Pruning trees, planting shade-resistant grass, or planting ground cover such as pachysandra can help the situation.
