You may think you know a lot about grubs, but do you? Grubs are actually beetle larvae, shocking isn’t it? Grubs start off as eggs laid by a female beetle. They hatch in soil after 4 weeks inside the ggs. They grow up into many different types of beetles you see every day. Grubs eat plant organic matter, mostly grass roots. Grubs are noctural, and hibernate like bears. Grubs are extraordinary but disgusting creatures.

You may not know why there were nasty looking grubs all over the MS fields two weeks ago. Well, here's the low down. The grubs had actually popped up because they were dying. At the end of September, they started eating the roots of the grass, which was killing the fields. This forced the maintenance staff to take drastic measures. The staff sprayed diazinon, a pesticide, on the middle school fields, slaughtering the grubs and causing them to appear aboveground. The grubs were quickly killed off by the poison, so the maitenance staff cleared them off the field. Now all is well with the MS fields.
