Have some small patches of dead grass/no grass. Did a little digging and found what appear to be black grubs? They are about 1-1/4

Grubs are the larvae of beetles and move into a "C" shape when disturbed. They are typically white in color. If you're finding black grub like pests I think you're dealing with mole cricket larvae. They can be controlled with Grubex or similar grub control products. Interesting what you might find beneath your lawn, isn't it? If you were a fisherwoman, you could catch bass with those! Best wishes with your lawn!
