I found this “bug” in the dirt of my flower garden next to the fence. My neighbors have an overflowing abundance of woodchips covering their yard. I think it came from there. Is this a worm, a caterpillar, or a larvae?

Scarab Beetle Grub

Dear Kachina,
This is the Grub of a Scarab Beetle.  If you found it in or near the compost pile, it might be the Grub of a Figeater, commonly called a Crawlyback.
