Grubs in a lawn

This is the first year that we are fertilizing our own lawn and not using a service. We purchased a 4 step program that includes insect protection. Do we need a separate application for grubs? I do not think our lawn has had a problem with grubs in the past.

I am guessing that you are referring to Step 3 of the Four Step Scotts program?  If so, then it does not control grubs. And that's fine, if you haven't had grub  problems in the past. Save your money -- no need to treat if there's no problem. If there is, you'll know it by August when thin or dead patches start to show  up. In that case, you'll know to treat for grubs next year with GrubEx (in early June).

Bottom line: don't apply it
