Today I moved some old rotted short logs that stood on end, and found many of these enormous grubs, about the size of thumb. I suspect them to be some stage in the life of the large death's head (delta-shape) moths we get here but I don't really know?

White grubs are the larval or grub stage of several species of beetles and chafers.


It's difficult to find any type of positive information about grubs. Whenever I found them in the compost pile, I would throw them out for bird food. The birds seemed to appreciate them.

@Allamanda Yes, and those large ones can cause extra damage when you're riding a bike.

@Allamanda I was wondering were that word came from. It sounds like it could be a fairly tasty wafer.
