We have a little problem in the Northwest these last couple of years. It is called beetle larvae. Some folks call it White Grubs. Whatever they are they are killing lawns with the help of wild critters such as raccoons, otters, skunks and of course my black friends… crows.
They cannot withstand the temptation of a lovely grub meal so they rip and churn the turf to find every last morsel. I head one person call this attack a “grass massacre”.
Here they are down at Lincoln Park next to the parking lot.
Note: I had to find a tool online to flip this video. Shame on me for recording in vertical.
Back to the crows & their meal. Check out the damage they did to just a small stripe of grass.
