Grubs - the buffet is open

This fall grubs,or really the critters that like to eat them, have been frustrating for the grounds crew.  Each morning we repair the previous night grub gorging by the raccoons and/or skunks.  The areas are seeded, repaired and treated with a grub killer (Dylox) but it takes a few days for it to work.  Until the grubs are dead, the midnight buffet stays open.  This year has been especially bad, most likely because of the mild winter and dry summer.   Hopefully this will end soon!
