I work at a Montessori school which has a really nice organic garden. This past year it was attacked by Japanese Beetles. I was told that the fertilizer that the old maintenance guy used on our soccer field promoted the grubs that turns into the beetles. I noticed that the field is starting to turn a little brown. We do have a watering system that waters every two days so I donít think that its form lack of water. Is there any type of fertilizer that I need to use this time of year and will it feed the grubs? I want to kill the grubs this year sometime but I am not to sure on how to do that.
Thanks for any help
