Japanese Beetle, June Beetle, May Beetle, Black Turfgrass, Asiatic Garden are the different types of grubs that can effect your lawn.

Grubs are the second stage, or larvae, of a beetle. They survive in this naked, white, "C"-shaped stage by eating the roots of grass plants. As the grass declines or dies, then large areas of what was your sod are dead and easily removed with a grass rake. The grubs then form a changing (pupa) stage like the cocoon of a moth or the chrysalis of a butterfly and then emerge to fly to your roses and many other plants where they now devour the leaf surfaces or petals while they are mating. The female then lays eggs that produce up to 235 new little grass eaters that dine briefly, and then go deep into the soil to survive winter.
