Shropshire, United Kingdom
My caretaker pal drew my attention to the damage the rabbits had done to his private 'lawn'..(more moss & thatch,I thought from over zealous,low cutting during drought). Looked more like birds rather than rabbits that had been scratching about. On investigation i've found the area to be infested with cockchafer larvae (& when i say infested...I plucked out literally dozens from an area of a square foot that i'd taken down to bare earth. If it were'nt so bad I'd rake it all bare & leave the birds to help eradicate the problem. Do any of you have a better or more instant idea please, avoiding chemicals if possible.
