Grubs are soft and white and they are the larvae of beetles. Are what you found hard and reddish in color? Do they look like the picture in the following website:

If so they are the larvae of a moth (sphinx) or other and grub control will not affect them. They will finish their pupation and then fly away. There is nothing you need to do to control them.
