The Curl Grub Larvae has a cream body with a light
brown head and they vary in size from 4mm to 40
mm when fully grown.The tail end of the grub may
look darker brown which is due to the soil the grub
has ingested during feeding. They are often incorrectly
referred to as witchetty grubs. The
grubs feed on plant roots in large numbers and curl
up when disturbed. Larvae are most active during
mid spring to mid summer, and can cause severe damage
to lawns, gardens and potted plants.
In affected lawns grass turns yellow then brown
and dies, and then the lawn can be lifted and rolled
back like a carpet.
