hi there fellows. I was yesterday working with the shovel and I found some Phyllophaga larvae preying on the roots of my pecan tree, I'm sure they are are all over the place and festing on the roots of other trees aswell. I'm in southern Southamerica and this is very comun. Is there any positive aspect to this or is this something I should try to combat somehow?
this is exactly how this root lover looks like:
