Chafer Grubs - Lawn Damage
Viewing a lawn in Newark, evidence of what Chafer Grubs can do to a lawn.
Chafer Grubs are the larvae of Chafer Beetles - depending on the species of Chafer they either feed on decaying plant material or plant roots. Some which are not pests can be found in borders and compost heaps, several species do however feed on the roots of grasses and can cause problems with lawns.
Treatment with Nematodes first, followed by a reconstruction in the Autumn and continuing seasonal treatments will hopefully have this lawn looking lush and green again ready for 2018.
