Around here they eat grass roots, tomato roots, and everything else under the soil. I put Bayer killer stuff in my pots so my hostas are safe from them as well as the weevil larva. Get rid of them!!!

At some point, those white grubs will come out of the ground as beetles. Douse them with soapy dish water.... instant death!
