    Simply put, Grubs are to Beetles, what Capillaries are to Butterflies. The Female Beetle lays eggs and that is how Grubs are spread

    However My area now has Sugar Cane Grubs. It is believed that they were brought in by Sod layers, buying Sod from Sugar Cane growing areas. Their Life Cycle has not been fully studied and we are having trouble controlling them.
