Asked March 26, 2017, 3:01 PM EDT

How can I control grubs from infesting my lawn. And also it might be night crawlers.
Thank you,

You can check for grubs by rolling back the turf. If grub damage is severe then the turf will lift up rather easily. I think night crawlers are also present. They are the ones making the bumps. Grubs have 3 year cycles, the first year damage is slight, the second more and the third severe.
