My tomato garden has white grubs. What is a safe product to use to kill grubs in this garden? The grub population in the tomato garden is 1-2 grubs per square foot. (We have white grubs in our lawn and in our foundation gardens as well. The Bayer product I am using in these areas says it isn't to be used with plants used for food.) Thank you for your input.

There are no products labeled to control grubs in a vegetable garden. Actually 1-2 grubs per square feet is not a severe problem. As you encounter the grubs drop them in a bucket of soapy water or simply smash them.
