I have white grubs in potted plants and throughout entire garden they are about the size of a 5 cent piece.

They seem to be everywhere. Someone said they could be curl grubs. How do i get rid of so many - we have nearly 3/4 acre garden and they seem to be everywhere. . Are their liquid and dry options? I found 30 just in one potted plant - plant now dead. Thanks

Hi Erin,

Thank you for contacting Yates.


Yes, looks like the insect is curl grubs. To control them in lawn, try "Yates Grub Kill & Protect for Lawns"  against a large range of common lawn pests including curl grubs, various beetle larvae, caterpillars and provides up to 6 months protection for your lawn. The product is available in both granular and concentrated liquid. Please read more of the product from the following link:


For ornamental garden beds, try Try 'eco-neem'. It's registered for the control of a broad range of chewing and sucking insects including curl grubs. Click here for more info or to buy:

Unfortunately, we have not got any registered products to control the pest for edibles. 


Hope this helps and happy gardening 🙂
