Hello, I don't know if you got rid of your Grub problem but you have to aerate your lawn and then go to Lowe's and get some grub control. Use a spreader while putting the grub control down all the grub control will then seep in to the holes made by the aerator and then water soon as you are done spreading, then all you have to do is give it time and it will work.
What is the best, safe, and free way to get rid of grubs? Thank you in advance.

I have heard that milky spore will get rid of grub worms. I just pulled up this video that tells about it.
Moles eat grub worms but they tear up your yard doing it. To get rid of the moles, you have to get rid of the grub worms. These worms turn into Japanese beetles.
We just moved into our house last August and now have discovered grubs in our back lawn. My husband isn't concerned, but I don't like the holes that the racoons leave in our yard. Does anyone know of a way to get rid of them without pesticides?

Sprinkle dried blood meal in and around your beds. It'll repel hungry critters, and give your flowers a much-appreciated dose of fertilizer at the same time.
Mix 1 tbsp. of pureed cayenne pepper and 1 tbsp. of liquid dish soap in a quart of water, and spray liberally around your plants.
All-Purpose Varmint Repellent: mix 2 eggs, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp. of hot chili pepper, 2 tbsp. of ammonia, and 2 cups of hot water in a bucket. Let the mixture sit for 3 or 4 days, and then paint it on fences, trellises, and wherever else unwanted varmints are venturing. (04/30/2005)
