Chafer Grubs (Phyllopertha spp)
Category: Turf Pests
Chafer grubs are white, fleshy grubs with brown heads and 3 pairs of legs on the front segments. Grubs live for 1-3 years before adult beetles emerge. Patches of dead or dying grass similar to that caused by leatherjackets are caused by the grubs. Most soil types.
