garden Grubs

Asked April 26, 2017, 12:46 PM EDT

Any ideas on how to get rid of grubs in my garden without using chemicals? I am physically removing them now when weeding and racking. I am finding 2-3 grubs in a sq. ft of soil. The earthworms still out number the grubs

It can be normal to find grubs in the soil and there are several species. You did not mention if you are referring to a vegetable garden or ornamental bed. Usually vegetables and plants replenish their roots pretty quickly and grubs are not much of a problem. No chemical control is necessary. You can expose them to the birds or keep doing what you are doing.
