Garden Grub (not the good kind)

While I have started putting in the raised beds I blogged about last time they aren’t full off top spoil yet. I got them built quick enough but the weather wasn’t great so I didn’t  move them from the garage till Tuesday, I was going to do a blow by blow picture blog of putting them together but being that I was winging it I decided that instead I’d just concentrate on the building.

While preparing the area that the beds were going I turn find a few creatures lurking beneath the surface hiding form the cold, the award for ugliest goes to this guy.

    Ugly little critter..
    A few of these guy’s will cause you little ‘real’ problems, but if you have a large number of these bad guy’s you may be forced into chemical warfare to eliminate them or at least thin them out to a manageable number.

    They will and do feed on almost any roots they can find from asparagus to zucchini.

    Happy gardening.

    Hmm, good to know. As this is my first year venturing into growing my own grub (peering over the shoulders of my parents growing up aside)the more information I have the better.

    The aim is to be as un reliant as possible on chemicals but thats because I want everything to be ‘in house’ and I don’t want to open up a chemical lab, my compost heap will supply the goodness, but it wont help with the pest control.
