Q.Will Lawn Grubs (white) Destroy A White Clover Lawn?

Zone Zone 6a, Nova Scotia | madrecluse added on April 30, 2020 | Answered

Hello, I dug deep in my lawn to remove weeds in prep for seeding clover, and I found several lawn grubs in the clay soil (I didn’t know what they were at the time..) My question is will a large amount of lawn grubs kill or eat my newly-sown clover? Does it have a chance of germinating? Please advise me how and when to use grub products – since I’ve just sown the clover seeds, when is a good time for me to use a product before they mature? I so appreciated the last question I asked, and thank you in advance for helping me on this one, too!
