City hall's 'living lawn' keeps chafer beetles at bay
Chafer beetle grubs make a tasty snack for crows, skunks and racoons that dig into lawns to feast on the pests.
The lawn at Richmond, B.C.'s city hall is an eco-friendly mix of tall fescue, micro-clover and wildflowers, called Fleur de Lawn, that is chafer beetle resistant. It is a "living lawn," the city's environmental coordinator says, adding it attracts beneficial insects while denying crows, skunks and racoons the chance to dig up chafer beetle grubs.
