Have you found ginormous grubs in your compost pile? If so, don’t panic!
Adult beetles are shiny brown and about 2 inches long. Males have horns while females do not. It takes 1-2 years for a generation to mature. So, if you find these guys (and girls) in your compost pile, leave them in peace...they're helping you compost!
Grubs are a common name for beetle larvae and these particular rubs become Ox beetles. The larvae look like a typical white grub and have a creamy C-shaped body, reddish head capsule and six legs. The difference is that these grubs look like they've been taking steroids and can fill the palm of your hand.
