White grubs are an annual pest of concern to cool-season lawn grasses in the mid-Atlantic, feeding on their root systems during the most stressful environmental periods of the year. While most adults are not problematic to lawn, garden, and landscape plants, the Japanese beetle is of particular concern. The control and management of these pests are detailed.
