No one wants grubs…just the word itself doesn't sound too appealing, does it? You may be wondering "what are grubs exactly?" Great question! Grubs are the larvae of Japanese beetles. They look like c-shaped creatures and you are most likely to find them in your soil. They're not attractive little critters and they certainly don't do any favors for your yard – especially when they're occupying it by the masses.
Just the presence of grubs isn't the sole reason for the destruction of your lawn, there are a variety of reasons you may see extensive damage.
Even if you have mole or skunk activity in your yard, that doesn't mean that you have grubs as these unwelcomed visitors may be wreaking havoc on your yard for other reasons. Don't believe it until you see it, so go check it out for yourself! One way you can do this is by selecting an area of your yard where you suspect a grub infestation. First, cut into a square foot of grass. You can try to peel up the grass like carpet which could be a sign of grub infestation. After you pull up the section, sift through the soil and see how many grubs there are. If you find less than 10 in a square foot, there's nothing to be concerned about. However, if you find more than 10, you're looking at a grub infestation.
