Are these grubs or some other damaging worm like in my soil?

10 years ago

Hello, Been a while since I last posted here. It's that time of the year again and I been a little more tending to my plants/trees.

I was preparing to test the soil fertility today and began digging a few inches into my soil and freaked out when I noticed these slithery looking small white worms. :shock:

There pretty small measuring in at around 1/2" to 3/4" in length.

Are these grubs or some other sort of worm that I should be concerned with? The front on their body is sort of flat shaped while their tail portion is pointed somewhat (as shown in the photo).

I also see many (of what seems like) their eggs (also included in photos).

Anybody know what these are? I discovered these in my grapes and nectarine trees which are both currently growing in plastic containers.

There are loads of these worms. It's as if there infested with these.. My plants haven't been looking it's best lately, which I been suspecting possibly some sort of nutrient deficiency.. And then I discover these... :(
