Searles Dead Grub Pro is a convenient granule that can be applied directly to your lawn. Ideally this should be followed up with a good hose in. This will wash the granule from the leaf of the grass into the soil increasing the effectiveness.
Fortune 500 is a termiticide that also has registration for Lawn Grubs. At a concentration of 500gm/l, this is considerably stronger than the majority of products that are available on the market.
Available: 1L, 5L, 20L
Active ingredient: Bifenthrin
Zeus has the same ingredient as Searles Dead Grub, but at 50 times the concentration. It is residual for a greater period of time and less affected by UV light and the pH of the soil.
Acelepryn has a wider safety margin than the above products and has the benefit that it can be applied as a preventative with a residual period of up to 6 months.
Conguard works differently, as the active ingredient is absorbed by the grass, like a sponge. This means when the grubs eat the roots, they ingest the chemical. This increases the effectiveness. Currently, hose-on versions of this product are being developed.
Want to avoid the chemicals? Professor Macs is an organic insecticide available in a convenient hose-on application.
