These pests have become a significant concern for lawn owners, leaving behind a trail of destruction. Our specialized Chafer Beetle Removal service is designed to tackle this problem head-on, restoring your lawn to its former glory, and preventing future infestations.

What are Chafer Beetles?

Prevent Erosion

Chafer beetles are a common turf pest found in various regions of British Columbia, including Metro Vancouver. The problem begins when the adult beetles lay eggs in the soil of your lawn. These eggs hatch into grubs, which are white, C-shaped larvae approximately the size of a dime. Living just below the surface, these grubs feast on the roots of grass plants, leading to significant damage. When it comes to property maintenance, these pests can't be overlooked.

The presence of chafer beetle grubs makes your lawn an attractive feast for wildlife like crows, raccoons, and skunks. These animals dig up the turf in search of the grubs, causing further damage to your lawn. The result is a shredded, unsightly mess that can be distressing for any homeowner.

Effective Chafer Beetle Removal


At Evergreen, we understand the frustration and damage caused by Chafer beetles in your lawn and landscape. That's why we offer a comprehensive, three-step Chafer Beetle Removal service designed to not only eliminate the immediate infestation but also to prevent future problems, ensuring your lawn remains beautiful and healthy.

Our 3-Step Prevention Process

1. Herbicide Treatment

Beneficial nematodes are microscopic parasites that naturally target and eliminate chafer beetle grubs. We apply these nematodes during their most vulnerable stage, typically from late July to early August. Our experts ensure that the application is done within the optimal window to maximize effectiveness.

2. Soil Amendment

Following the herbicide application, we focus on the health of your soil. Chafer beetles thrive in poor soil conditions, so improving your soil's health is crucial for long-term prevention. Our team applies top-quality soil amendments that enhance soil structure, improve drainage, and increase nutrient availability. This not only discourages future infestations but also promotes the growth of a robust lawn.


3. Re-Seeding

Interestingly, allowing natural predators like birds and raccoons to access the grubs can be beneficial before and after nematode application. This approach helps reduce the grub population, making the nematode treatment even more effective.

Tailored Maintenance Programs

Understanding that each landscape is unique, we work closely with our clients to develop optimal maintenance programs. These programs are tailored to the specific needs of your lawn and landscape, ensuring sustained health and beauty. Regular maintenance is key to preventing pest re-infestation and in keeping your lawn in peak condition.

While many opt for the basic application of nematodes as a quick fix to Chafer beetle problems, this solution often acts merely as a temporary band-aid. Nematodes can reduce Chafer grub populations, but without addressing the underlying issues, such as soil health and grass resilience, infestations are likely to reoccur. Our service goes beyond temporary fixes. By treating the problem at its source and focusing on long-term health and prevention. Evergreen offers a superior solution that ensures your lawn remains vibrant and pest-free for years to come.
