What can I do to prevent grubs in my garden soil?

Asked February 14, 2015, 1:06 PM EST

Last spring and summer, my garden soil was overrun by grubs. Could not dig up a scoopful of soil without finding little white things practically anywhere in the garden. I have to do something about it this year so I am starting early. Please let me know what I can do.

There are many types of grubs that may be in your soil such as Japanese beetles, masked chafers, June beetles, etc. You did not mention if you are referring to a vegetable garden. Usually vegetables replenish their roots pretty quickly and grubs are not much of a problem. No control is necessary.
