If you are an avid gardener, you already know the dread of finding grubs in your soil. And your healthy lawn looks like a great snack to them! This beetle larva eats the roots of your grass to fatten up, and as your roots are destroyed, so is your pristine turf.
Signs You Have Grubs
Grubs are white, C-shaped creatures that have soft bodies and legs near their head. Finding multiple grubs is a sign of a problem. Other signs include:
- Brown patches that never turn green
- Irregularly shaped dead patches (when you are already taking good care of your lawn)
- An increased presence of birds, skunks, armadillos, raccoons, and moles, who eat grubs and will tear up your lawn to find them
- Spongy turf
