White Grubs

Monday, 1 July 2013

White Grubs are the larvae of various scarab beetles, family Scarabaeidae, including May, June and Japanese Beetles. They are whitish with brown heads and three pairs of legs, and are often found curled into a C shape under the soil surface. Size varies from around a half inch to two inches in length according to species. If skunks, raccoons, moles and other small animals are digging in your lawn, this may indicate the presence of white grubs. These larvae feed on roots, particularly in lawns where the turf may become brown in patches and can be rolled back like a carpet.  Source: http://www.daylilies.org/ahs_dictionary/white_grubs.html
