This little grub is doing BIG damage to lawns in your neighborhood.
The European Chafer Beetle is an invasive species and brings a one-two punch. While in the larvae stage these little white grubs feast on the roots of your grass, slowly killing the lawn from the bottom side up. If your lucky, all you will notice is a growing patch of dead lawn. In most cases however, the presence of these grubs in your lawn invite much larger problems.
Raccoons, skunks and crows find these grubs to be an easy meal, due to the fact they are relatively easy to get at since they are just below the surface. This is where the most damage to lawn occurs. At night, raccoons and skunks are very good hunters and find digging in your grass an easy task to get at this ready quick meal, while during the day you may notice a gathering of crows plucking at your turf.
Although frustrating and unsightly, there is a way to control these grubs and keep your lawn full and lush throughout the year.
