UGH! Sorry to hear it. Have you looked for Forum back threads about the subject? I think there is some usefullness of beneficial nematodes, but grubs are tough.

I Googled Grubs and all I could come up with was Grubsteak Pizza in Kimberley. I wonder if they realize how revolting it sounds. Very Happy

Nematodes (Heterorhabditis Bacteriophora) for Soil Pest Control. says they'll get rid of grubs in 24 to 48 hours. found this at the gardeningzone.com. hope it helps.
