But, if you’ve found grub worms to be a problem for you, have no fear! Here are a few easy and effective solutions to get rid of them!
Milky spore is not only environmentally friendly, but it is one of the best ways to safely treat a lawn or garden effected with grub worms. All you need to do is apply the spores to the infested area and let nature take its course. Grub worms will become infected as they feed and begin to die off. Not only that, but after the grub are gone, more spores enter the soil which helps prevent other grub worms from appearing!
