We've used nematodes from a local nursery. You can't see them, but they come in a jar and you spread it on the lawn.
Here's a link with more info: www.uri.edu/.../whitegrub.html

A lady at the local Farmer's Market told me beer is the answer. Use pie tins. Hollow out the ground where you will place the tin a little so the tin is level with the ground.

Fill the tin with beer. The grubs are attracted to it and drown in it. Not exactly free, but cheaper than most treatments.

The method you are describing (beer in shallow pie plates) is for killing slugs, not grubs.

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.
