Randomly dig a few holes in your lawn and look for fat white worms that curl up in a C shape. There are a number of grub-killing products on the market -- look for one at your local garden center./

Simple Trick for Spreading Seed: Tired of dumping out a lot of grass seed where you just need a little? Reuse an empty parmesan cheese dispenser so you won’t pour out too much. Smart Dispenser.
