Identifying grubs

White grubs are small, plump, white larvae which viciously chew on grass roots. Living below the soil surface the larvae actually chew off the roots of the grass destroying the healthy blades leading to dry, yellow patches. Often a telltale sign of a grub problems will be small animals, such as skunks and raccoons digging up the lawn and birds feeding on grubs, leaving pencil-sized holes.
