Sounds counterproductive. Providing easy food isn't exactly going to motivate them to search out the grubs.

False, because the birds that eat grubs are omnivores. They can't live on seed alone, nor can they live on insects alone. The variation in their diet is often misunderstood, meaning a person watching birds eat seeds or birds eat bugs, may assume that the birds will only prefer to eat 1 type of food, such as forage for insects or wait for handouts of seeds and if you handout seeds, they wont forage for insects. This is incorrect because omnivores need both and if you have both on or near the property, they are much more likely to frequently feed at that location than move somewhere else.

No to worry, skunks and raccoons are more then happy to rip up your lawn to eat the grubs.
