I harvested some compost from the bottom of my bin last weekend and found a lot of big ol' grubs - I mean BIG - curled up they looked like good sized shrimp or prawns. Light grayish white. What will these grow up to be?
The ones in my compost pile (that I would describe that way) grow into June bugs. A large iridescent green flying beetle that will munch roses but seems to prefer gathering nectar in these parts. I read some post where some say they will devastate roses, but as I said that hasn't happened in the 5 years I've paid attention. LOL. When I find em in the pile I generally pick out all I find and put on a pan for the birds to eat. The pan has to have a fairly high lip tho, otheriwse the suckers climb out and burrow back into the ground.
