I have curl grub larvae in my pots. How can I eradicate them in the soil?

Answer: Hi,

Thank you for contacting Yates. Curl grubs are the larvae form of scarab beetles, mainly the African Black Beetle. The peak egg laying period for African Black Beetle is mid spring to mid summer. Applying Yates Baythroid from late winter to late spring will help reduce the number of adult African Black Beetles and that lay eggs that would develop into curl grubs.

Thank you for your time.
