Controlling White Grubs Naturally
What are white grubs?
White grubs are the larvae stage of the Common Chafer, European Chafer, Japanese Beetle, Asiatic Garden Beetle, Black Vine Weevil, Strawberry Root Weevil, plus May & June Beetles. These grubs are soft and white, with a C-shaped body. They can be from a quarter inch to 3 inches long. You'll find them just under the soil, eating grass roots. As the roots die, your grass wilts and turns brown. Another sign of grub damage is holes dug in your lawn. These are made at night, by skunks digging for grubs to eat.
White Grub Treatments
Maintain a healthy lawn and you'll be able to support a few grubs without seeing any damage. Treat the soil with compost and don't cut the grass shorter than 3 inches. Mulch the grass to feed the nitrogen to the lawn and help decompose the thatch. See our section on creating a healthy lawn.
