If you want to know whether you have an extensive billbug infestation, you can sample spots in your yard to assess the population and if it is worth treating.

Take about a 6 x 6 inch sample in at least four areas of your yard. Cut at least two inches into your soil and pull back the turf/soil sample to look at the crown/root area. You should be able to see the larvae if they are present. If there is more than 6 per sample, treatment is usually necessary.

And it’s that easy with the expert help from Do My Own Pest Control dot com!
