    Sprinkle broken egg shells into topsoil about 4 inches down when the grubs bump into them they go away

    You basically have to grow completely new grass in that area. Thatch to remove old, dead grass, aerate and seed the spot, and keep moist at all times for at least a month. Also, moving forward use grub preventer annually... it can seem unnecessary and expensive but is much cheaper and way less work than having to do a new lawn.

    It sounds like you may have chinch bugs which eat the roots of grass. You may have to use a garden chemical to stop the infestation. Try your gardening center for advice. You could try a home remedy of bleach, dish soap and water. Bleach generally does not harm grass.
