Grubs

We had my grandparents over for dinner last weekend. My grandpa walked into our backyard and declared that we have grubs. They came over for grub and they found grubs -- how ironic!

"What's a grub?" I asked innocently. My grandpa shook his head, ignored me and gave a lengthy lecure of lawn care maintenance to poor Matt.

But talk about ironic, that same night, I opened the Sunday Chicago Tribune and someone was asking about grub help. They told them to use a fast acting insecticide such as trichlorfon at this time of year (Sept) and/or imidacloprid in late June.

So I just applied the insecticide today and gave a good watering so we'll see what happens next spring!
