    I have moles due to grubs, black beetles & delicious worms. But moles tear the yard up😪

    A simple question deserves a simple answer, not over nine-minutes of pontification. I did like the part where he said, "John is full of shit."

    Chickens like to eat them.

    Too many "dudes" in the conversation. Not everyone is 12.

    Why can’t people just go straight to the point and answer the question!!

    I’m here because we just moved into a new rental house where the lawn is really patchy because of grubs. We’re fans of natural lawns and pollinator lawns, and it pains us to see so many people dumping chemicals into their yards in order to have a lawn that isn’t even native to our region. Anyway, our landlord had said he’d bring some chemicals to take care of the grubs, and we were like, "Ehhhh, we’ll take care of it." So here we are. No idea if my grubs are Japanese or not, but I’ll definitely look for some nematodes. Thanks for the suggestion, John! Just subscribed and am looking forward to more tips! I love the enthusiasm!

    Someone said corn meal works too. Grubs eat it but couldn’t digest it. Since they don’t have health insurance they can only suffer and die

  12. Betty Whitmire on November 17, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    You take to long to get to the point

  13. Jo Jo on November 17, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Geez man, just get to the point. 5 ins in and still no solution

  14. Jessica Peerez on November 17, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    racoon’s and possums eat them.

  15. Garden of Seeden on November 17, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    I have an half acre or more garden. I cannot dig every foot of that by hand getting out grubs. Some of them go pretty deep into the ground also.

    Aliens?
    Get to the point
    what would Jesus do

    Too much chit chat. Please just get to the point.

    Less BS and more substantial info.

    UGH. Moles. They bring so many moles. It’s virtually impossible to water my garden because of the moles. (I have rows and I can’t water down them because the water goes down a hole… a plant flips over because there’s no dirt underneath it… then another hole comes out of nowhere stealing the water from the row… and then you think you’re watering one spot but you take a step on the other side of the garden and you fall into a big puddle that was an inch under the soil in a big mole hole.)

    5 and 1/2 minutes of YAKKING before you hear anything about what to do.

    Ducks!

    If I let nature take care of all these white grubs my whole garden would be tore up by moles. The Milky sore worked for Japenese Beetles as the moles were no longer visiting. We also used Japenese beetle traps on both ends of property far away from house and gardens. WOW! Do they ever work Great! We changed out the full bags several times last year and so far this year we only seen a handful–Shhh! We only hand that many potatoe beetles as well, But we make up for it with Grubs and cabbage moths this year–Ugh! The moles will dig where you water and that’s also where grubs will be. Wasn’t happy to see mole trail all around new blueberry plants especially for me trying them for first time.
    I also read we can introduce them to the garden if the compost didn’t get hot enough and ours does not. So I’m leary about if I can keep the nematodes damp enough in sandy loam or the other 2 choices is neem oil drench or tilling and plucking which isn’t possible with growing or permanent plants.
    Did you ever find a reputable company to get nematodes from?

  24. Angry Birds Fish on November 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Im here because i found a weevil grub in my soup

  25. Charles on November 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Skip to 5:19. That’s where he starts to get to the point of the video.

  26. XBL on November 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Nematodes are around worms , yucks I have dogs I don’t need that near my k9. 😢

  27. Mealzanator on November 17, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Milkyspore? How do you spell that? I’m trying to look for some. If I can’t then I’ll just have to use neem oil. They have been in my pots over and over. Even after buying replacement soil. Washing the pots. I lost all my tomato crop this year and a number of other plants.

  28. Mickey on November 17, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    Here in Ontario, Canada, Japanese and Rose chafer beetles are a real problem. Unfortunately, milky spore does not survive our frozen soils overwinter in zone 4/5. Beneficial nematodes are a hit or miss and must be applied after a good rain between the right atmospheric temperatures. The stars must be aligned for the nematodes application to take effect accordingly.

    Grief just give us a remedy

  30. Louie Adam on November 17, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Simplified your answer, brief and concise. It is waste of time to watch with so much adlibs.

  31. dmmcdow on November 17, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    I agree, get to the point!

  32. Dan Humphrey on November 17, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    GET TO THE POINT!

  33. Elizabeth Reid on November 17, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    you take so long to say nothing

  34. Fred McMurray on November 17, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    nature would send in the skunks

  35. ingrid ugarteche on November 17, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    You’re so funny 😂 😊 🧐 🤓🤓🤓🤦🏻‍♀️ but I just got to go pick my worms!! Im collecting them to keep them as pets!!

  36. Marcelino Fernandez on November 17, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I experimented this I put Coffee ground in a bucket on one side and then I put a grab in it and observed that they don’t like coffee ground they get away from it.Try it.

  37. creolelady182 on November 17, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I cant believe it takes 500yaers to answer this question

  38. Mara Grace on November 17, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    1 acre dynatrap AND you get rid of japanese beetles (grubs) in 2-3 days. They love to dive in at night in there.
    I had a HUGE infestation. They used to eat my cherry tree leaves in 3 days.
    They are gone. This machine also gets rid of mosquitoes and damaging moths

  39. Kenneth Hopson on November 17, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Talk, talk, talk, more action.

  40. Chrystal Slayton on November 17, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    I was so sad to see these guys when I dug up some cherry spark beardtongue I planted last year. It was my absolute favorite flower I planted, and 5 out of 6 died. Pretty sure they are the culprit, so I’ll be taking Your advice and treating my whole garden. I don’t want any of my other flowers eaten alive

  41. Robert D. on November 17, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    please get to the answer

  42. MsMimireilly on November 17, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    You really dragged this video out.

  43. Lass A on November 17, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Love your vids!!! Just ordered milky spores.

  44. MsMimireilly on November 17, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    5:17 for the answer:
    Milky Spore–a bacteria that you put in the soil that attacks the grubs. Only good for Japanese grubs.
    or
    Beneficial Nematodes–tiny, microscopic “worms” that mostly live in soils. While some species harm plant roots, others are beneficial by attacking and killing pests such as grubs in our lawns and gardens.

  45. Carrington Oliver on November 17, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    What a terrible waste of my time….terrible video

  46. Holly Larsen on November 17, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Why are we not allowed St Gabriel’s milky spore in California? Need it in Palm Desert!

  47. Cecilia Morris on November 17, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Grubs bring moles into people’s yards…………….. that’s what nature does.

  48. keli Surfs on November 17, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Thanks John for letting us know that we should use beneficial nematodes to get rid of grubs in the soil.

  49. Carrington Oliver on November 17, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Good lord, can you just get to/answer the question…..so much damn fluff..

  50. John Bouldin on November 17, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Skip forward to 1:22 and then skip forward to 5:22 to get the grubs discussion.
