Your letter to the bugman:  I keep finding these in my soil when I am planting. They are usually a couple inches under the soil. Lived here 23 yrs and never saw them. This spring I’ve already found about 40. Should I be worried??

Scarab Beetle Grub

Dear Worried gardener,
Though we cannot provide you with a definitive species, this is definitely the grub of a Scarab Beetle.  Many species of June Beetles have grubs that feed on the roots of grasses.
