Today I was greeted by white grub making his way across my driveway.
How unusual it is to see a grub in the middle of the day making his way across a driveway. Grubs live underground and feed on the roots of grass, weeds, ornamentals and a few other kinds of plants.
The White Grub is the larvae of the “June Beetle”. There are over a hundred different kinds if “June Beetles”.
When there is a heavy infestation of grubs you will find it certainly will attract raccoons, skunks, armadillos, opossums, crows, ibis, and other birds, which make holes in the lawn and garden to feed on the grubs.
This is the largest grub I have ever seen. This guy measured almost 5 inches in length. I am surprised he wasn’t lunch for one of the many birds that hang out around our house.
