Alpha Home Pest Control – The Billbug Infestation Experts of Boise, Southern Idaho, and Eastern Oregon

One of Idaho's most common lawn pests is the Bluegrass Billbug.  If not taken care of with proper precautions these insects can do serious damage to your yard. Alpha Home Pest Control can help with the prognosis.

Damages from billbugs can resemble drought/lack of watering, with irregular patches of dry grass. Some people may think the dry looking lawn isn’t getting enough water and will continue to water more, however, the damaged lawn will not respond to the extra watering. 

Adult Bluegrass Billbugs are gray, brown, or black with a hard body that is about 3/16″ (5 mm) in size.  When temperatures rise in the spring, billbugs can often be found on your patios and sidewalks.  The appearance of these bugs is most prominent between May and mid June.  Lawn damage resulting from billbugs presents itself in the form of holes chewn out of your yard’s grass. Billbug larvae causes significantly more damage than is done by adults. Billbug larvae are white with a brown head, legless, C-shaped and about the size of a large grain of rice. They are so harmful to grass because they feed on the grass roots. Billbug larvae can spread easily and cause damage to significant portions of your lawn causing it to look dry and dead. If you are noticing your lawn starting to get odd dry patches, you may want to contact an expert.
