CHAFER GRUBS AND LEATHER JACKETS
Chafer Grubs and Leather Jackets both have a very healthy appetite for grass roots and stems and can decimate a lawn in a matter of days!
Leather Jackets are the larvae of the Cranefly. The grubs are legless brown/grey in colour and up to 40mm in length. Chafer Grubs are the larvae of the Chafer Beetle. They are pinky white with a brown head, have three pairs of front legs and are usually about 12mm long. Patches of dead or dying grass become apparent and attract rooks and starlings diving in to feed.
