It’s obvious Vancouver lawns being killed by chafer beetle is a spreading epidemic! Much like the devastation created throughout British Columbia with the spread of pine beetle, chafer beetle is quickly leaving its’ mark on lawns all over the Mainland. The European Chafer Beetle has settled down and is here to stay. It destroys grass by eating at the roots, laying its’ eggs underground and multiplying fast.
Once again, like the pine beetle necessary action to stop the spread of this problem was not addressed soon enough. When the eggs hatches the grub becomes a beetle and flies off to the next yard or next block and feeds off fresh roots.
Perhaps you are experiencing chafer beetle infestation but don’t even realize it! If your grass looks like this or is dead with what appears to be tunnels underneath and feels squishy it’s likely this culprit. If crows, skunks, raccoons, or other pests are showing up at your doorstep for the feast, you have chafer beetle.
Since around 2001 the European Chafer Beetle immigrated to the Vancouver area. Each year the spread continues, much like witnessing the spread from green pine trees to the whole province looking rusty. We MUST act now!
Pesticide use is not a healthy option and is banned in many communities. Timing is everything! Some businesses promote the use of nematodes but there is only a small window of time and requires home-owners diligence to follow through with elimination.
