Grubs!

orangedragonflyMay 23, 2007

I just dug up a corner of my yard were I am going to put some tomatoe plants. as I was digging and using my garden weasle, I came across alot of grubs, I read that they are the larvea of some beetle? is this correct? I honestly dont think the old lady that lived in this house did much lawn care in the 60 yrs she lived here. is there anything I can add to this bed that will rid of these gross things? lime? epsom salts?

ok after some (lots) of reading of past posts about this subject, ive come to the conclusion that I need to use nematodes. I do have some questions on this application. Is it safe to use around veggies, or should I spray and wait a while, or can they be put in right after application?

Can this be applied now here in Mass?

nemotodes can be used in vegetable gardens the same day you pick fruit.
