Red face Pet friendly grub control

I have grubs really bad in my yard and the moles are bad also, I was wondering if there's any pet friendly grub control where I wouldn't have to worry about not letting them out in that part of the yard after I spread it. I work in agronomy for agriculture and we have customers that say their dogs play in the spray when they spray in their yard but I dont want to take the chance of them and Justin any kind of insecticide. I've never dealt with trying to get rid of grubs or anything before is it all granular that you put out and doing just need to put it around where the mole holes are I have a really big yard but only got moles in about a fourth of it.

You want the critters called "beneficial nematodes".

Dont assume your moles are going to go away when grubs are gone, earthworms are their primary diet. I have no grubs but plenty of moles!

This is pretty much a non-toxic treatment but it's not a typical insecticide. Japanese grub beetles are the main target though I didn't read any further to see if it does work on others. It's not as simple as applying a traditional insecticide so take some time to learn about it and see if it's what you want. I have no experience with it.
