Grubs white are the larva of the Japanese beetles feed on your lawn beneath the surface, so if you have any brown spots, animals digging, or lots of birds, chances are you have grubs.
If you’ve got raccoons, skunks or birds digging up your lawn, that’s a clear sign of grubs. These animals LOVE to feat on large grubs, so that is a clear red flag that you need a treatment and fast!
Another sign would be if you can pull patches entire patches from your yard. In this instance, the grubs have eaten through your root system, and your grass has lost it’s support structure.
