treatment for white grubs in lawn

Asked September 20, 2019, 8:39 AM EDT

What do I need to do to control white grubs in my lawn? Thought at first my sprinkler system was just not covering a small area, but the ares has tripled in size so I dug up a couple of areas and found a few 3/4" white grubs with brown heads. Is there a curative treatment that can be done now, and then a preventative treatment next Spring? Can the treatments be done by myself, must (should) treatments b e done by a professional due to toxicity. There are no children, but there is a dog. Thanks!!

We have a fact sheet on white grubs in lawns which can be found here (the section on treatment starts on page two): https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/insects/billbugs-and-white-grubs-5-516/

If you have any questions after looking over the fact sheet please let me know.
