Grub Control Question

I have areas of dead grass that I have pulled up with my hands. I see the white grubs and also earthworms.
Is there a control that will kill grubs but not hurt my earthworms?
I am in NY, so I know that not all controls are available here.
Thanks

Bayer Advanced 24 Hour Grub Killer Plus should be available in your area. It contains Dylox (chemical name trichlorfon) which quickly kills active grubs. Apply according to the label directions. Now is a great time to apply this product as the grubs are still feeding near the surface of the soil. Dylox breaks down quickly in the soil and is not known to harm earthworms or other beneficials.
