This is what eats your garden and tree roots. Ten of these 25 millimeter grubs were found in the roots of my potted orange tree. I dumped the entire pot out to examine the roots after the trees began dropping leaves and the bark turned black at the end of the branches. The condition became evident following the long winter rains which didn't allow the tree roots to dry. The type of larvae or grub is not known but its origin had to be either the original soil from the Nursery or from the additional potting mix when re-potted into a larger 5 gallon pot. The condition over 4 months changing from a lush green tree to yellow leaves then to a bare tree. Before potting a 2nd time, the roots were hosed down to remove ALL soil. Now 3 months later the bare tree has sprouted 3 large green shoots.
