White grubs

6816.         I found this insect while digging in my garden, begging him of May, I found one exactly like this last spring as well. Medicine Hat, Alberta. Canada

Number 6816. This is a larva of a beetle in the family Scarabaeidae. Commonly called white grubs, some species can be quite destructive lawn/turf, feeding on roots of grasses. Those found in garden soil more likely are feeding on decomposing organic material there.
