Grubs have invaded my yard and garden. I would like to get rid of most of these without fear of killing my rich earthworm population or harming the birds, squirrels and other wildlife. I also have pets (dogs/cats) that go into the yard and garden. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your question. Here's a link to an Extension article that discusses their life cycle and gives you some ideas about controlling them, ranging from walking on the sod with spiked sandals, to beneficial nematodes, to chemical control (if you have to resort to it.)

Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
