Distant: Turf thins in patches in the lawn or in a golf course fairway; dead patches may appear if a heavy grub infestation is combined with prolonged dry weather in September or October. Skunks and raccoons may turn-over heavily infested turf in search of grubs to eat.

Up close: Turf heavily infested with grubs can be easily rolled back when most of the roots have been consumed. In the top 2 inch of soil under infested turf look for C-shaped white grubs from ½ to 1 inch long.
