White fat grubs in compost - are they harmful?
Glasgow, United Kingdom
I was about to put primrose and geraniums in some planters that have been outside since last year. I decided to fluff up the compost when I noticed there were dozens of fat white/creamy looking grubs with brown heads Yuk! They give me the boak! Anyway are they harmful to the plants should I just ditch and buy new compost? The soil and vegataion around here is covered with slugs and snails so I was wondering if that had anything to do with it?
