Grubs do feed on the roots of plants, and can cause significant damage to lawns if their population is large. A small grub population, however, is not something to worry too much about. Take an inventory of the population. In several areas of the lawn, peel back a square foot of sod and count how many of the C-shaped grubs you find. Do this in a few areas in your flowerbeds as well. If there are more than 10 or 12 grubs per square foot you may want to do something to reduce their numbers. Beneficial nematodes are an effective and safe control.
