Grubs are the larvae form of many insects such as Japanese beetles. These insects can lay eggs in your lawn, which is how the grubs initially there. Grubs themselves don’t necessarily do a lot of damage to your lawn, but the real danger comes when the hatch. When hatched, they start feeding on the roots of the grass. This prohibits water from being soaked up and makes the lawn easy to pull up. Grubs are also a favorite food of rodents such as raccoons and skunks, so if your lawn has grubs you can expect rodents around to dig and do some damage as well.
