Grub Education Badly Needed

I have inspected several St Augustine lawns that are clearly in some type of decline. I look at the roots and they are almost gone. I always find at least one grub but seldom more than a couple. I also see a lot of little ants of some type not fire ants. Also I see little baby pill bugs. And when I walk over these areas they are spongy.

What is the life cycle of grubs now considering the warmer temps. Maybe i also look after they all flew the coop. All that is left is a bunch of eggs and dying grass. Then the little eggs hatch and they eat some more.

Just in case will Aloft LCG give me some coveage for a few months so that I can lay new sod and not get it ate up.
