I let my dog out for his last toilet break before bed and I was greeted by a mass army of White Grubs on the pathway and on my lawn, I can only guess that these pests were in the soil and the rain forced them up to the surface for air. The grubs proceeded to wiggle their way towards my back door in mass, some of which successfully got under the backdoor of my home. I must have used close to twenty kettles of boiling water outside to kill them. In all my life, I have never seen or even heard of such a spectacle. I Googled this oddity and there are different variations and descriptions as to what type of Larvae these are but I have not got a clue. It certainly explains why I went from a thick lush lawn to one that has started to thin out, "The buggers are eating the grass roots"
I need to nip this in the bud and source a pesticide in the hope I do not get a second wave of Larvae wanting to share my home and garden so it looks like my weekend will be taken over by D.I.Y. pest control.
