Grubs in Compost

15 years ago

I started a compost pile last year and noticed that there seemed to be quite a large number of grubs in my compost pile. The grubs seem to be white ranging from 1 to 2 inches. Are these normal and safe to have in my compost. I have heard mixed ideas about these grubs. I have heard that they eat the roots of plants but have also heard that they are beneficail to to the pile. Is it safe to put the composted material into my garden bed with these grubs? I am going to be planting some newly grown plants and want to make sure that these grubs will not kill the plants. Any info is appreciated!
