Does tilling up the area good to get rid of grubs?? (My dog can't seem to find them all...;)

Rototilling a garden bed repeatedly can bring the grubs up to the surface where they are fair game to birds and to the elements. There are grub control products on the market but in order to be effective they need to be applied in mid-summer when the grubs naturally migrate towards the soil surface. Go ahead and do your tilling - you should have great success. If you're still bringing them up in early spring you can apply beneficial nematodes to the garden area. These can be effective but they take a while to work. Best wishes with your garden!
