If you stick with the video you will see shocking footage around half way through of what a Chafer grub can do to your grassland, not something I have ever come across but I think we should all be aware of as the potential damage to grassland is shocking to see, if you have suspect patches worth taking a look see.

I'll tell you what's going on there.

There's so much nutrients in the ground and bio mass in the soil that Nature has found a way to use those nutrients. It's pretty obvious, the more available nutrients in the soil SOMETHING is going to make use of them. In this case a Chafer grubs.

Same thing is going to happen with this idea of "Regenerative" agriculture. Nature isn't going to stand still whilst Environmentalists play god.

Nematode worms might help if they are vulnerable to those. But they can also cause problems in livestock.
