I either have grubs or Japanese beetles. They (along with pests that are digging up my grass looking for them) are ruining my beautiful yard!! I have found some of these and they look like beetles (have a hard outer shell). What can I do to get rid of them? I have brown spots all over my yard. Please advise.
Grubs vs Japanese Beetle

Grubs are actually the larvae of Japanese beetles. Here is an article or two that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/lawn-grubs-how-to-get-rid-of-grub-worms.htm
I sprinkled a biological powder control that can be found at most garden supply stores. I have only a fraction of the beetles and no more ruts in that part of my yard.
