Distant: Skunk and raccoon activity may be the first sign of a grub problem. The turf will be dug-up and flipped-over during the night. The damaged area will get larger each night. Another symptom of a grub infestation is when turf becomes thin and sometimes dies in patches.

Up close: Dead patches or large areas of thinning, browning or dead turf. The grass can often be pulled back easily because most of the root system has been consumed by grubs.
