There are several methods for dealing with grubs. If the infestation is not too severe, you might not need to do anything. Turning the soil and exposing the grubs to birds can help. Next, work at controlling adult beetles and this should reduce the number of grubs in subsequent generations. In addition, you could consider using beneficial nematodes to control them in the vegetable garden. They are available from suppliers such as Gardens Alive.
