grubs, vegetables, bees, insecticides

Asked June 3, 2019, 5:30 PM EDT

Hello,
I have several vegetable gardens and I have found grubs ~ hundreds in a 2x2 area in an area very close to my gardens.
I also have Bees, 2 hives.

I need to kill the grubs.... digging them all up in that area is doable, but a formidable task.
I want to use something in all my gardens areas (multiple) that surround the grub area.
Thought for a moment about Sevin, but it's bad for my bees....
Also have chickens and rabbits that eat the foliage, but I can deter that problem if necessary.

I am at a loss here.
