Past couple of years I've been getting skunks digging in the yard. Not a lot but I've had to deal with sprayed pets which is no fun.

I applied Milky Spore past 2 falls but I was doing a little digging and ran across this guy. Any idea what type of grub it might be? I'm thinking it might not be a japanese beetle grub since the milky spore has had no effect on it.

Chafer grub if its not Japanese beetle, but I'm afraid I think it IS Japanese beetle because of the fine hairs - chafer grubs don't have those.

  • THanks Bamboo. I just found this page on grubs. maine.gov/dacf/php/gotpests/bugs/documents/… Looks like I didn't get a good shot of the area that's used to identify them. If I see any more I'll try to take a better shot. – OrganicLawnDIY Apr 22 '14 at 14:36
