If you are putting down a 24 hour grub killer to kill adult grubs, then I would say yes its ok. Read the label to make sure. Usually these products need to be immediately watered in. In late June, every year, put down a grub preventative-Merit so they won't have this problem in future.

Since the grubs you have now are adult, you will have a harder time killing them. They won't do much damage to the lawn, but the skunks, etc. will do more damage digging them up.

I agree with Mike. But mature grubs are tough--if you kill 75 percent you will be lucky. Be sure to use Merit about late June.
