What do you recommend for getting rid of masked chafer grubs? Gardens Alive catalogue says milky spore is not effective on them. They have a nematode-type product that eliminates both japanese beetle and chafer grubs. Do you have a take on this?

According to Warren Schultz in the Chemical-Free Lawn, a product called Scanmask contains parasitic nematodes which will control all types of grubs. This si sprayed on a lawn when grubs are present, and the nematodes seek out and destroy the grubs. Good luck!
