White Grubs are one of the most damaging lawn insect in Florida when active. They can destroy a lawn in a few days. Damage appears as dead brown patches in mid August, usually in the sunniest locations. These patches can likely be pulled up like a carpet, as grubs will have eaten the root system. The best time to control grubs is when the larvae are small and actively feeding near the surface.
