I'm sure many of you are having the same problem. From what I gather they are bad this year! I have found a formula for getting rid of those suckers!
  Shaklee makes 2 products that work well together. this is my formula. tried and tested.
1.5 quarts of basic H
1/2 pint of basic G
10-12 gallons of water
use ortho bottle, or injector
spray every 100 feet, or acre.
THE GRUBS WILL BE GONE!

Basic H is an organic surfactant. plants love it. Basic G is a germicide. both have been used in combination with each other for many years, for instance in cleaning livestock buildings. But this combination works great for getting rid of grubs. the liquid lea is simply liquid vitamins. that combo will fertilize, get rid of dandelions, and rid your yard of grubs. then the moles will move on. www.4greenhealth.com

Yes, 4greenhealth promoting chemical $ solutions are frowned on around here.  Using H & G are not a sustainable solution, and anything that kills grubs, worms and dandelions is moving in the wrong direction, away from permaculture

Any other ideas
