Q.We Have A Lawn That When It’s Been Wet It Is Covered In Grubs. There Are Roughly About 30 Per Square Metre And The Lawn Is About

Zone Gloucestershire | Anonymous added on August 28, 2021 | Answered

60 square meters and is completely covered in them. Is there anything I can treat the lawn with as it’s so infested? We have put out containers with beer in to catch some but it’s such a big task !!! We have a dog so preferably treatment that is safe but equally we can keep the dog away whilst being treated, rather than have to put up with the grubs ! The lawn is a fairly new lawn about 18 months old laid in rolls of turf. The garden gets the sun in the day.

It looks like you have a variety of slugs, not grubs. Since you have an extensive problem, you may need to contact a pest control service. These articles should help:
