Hi there,

Any idea what this is - or what it will become? I find a lot when weeding - wondering if I should squash them


Thank you

that looks like a leather jacket. Have a look at google images to see check.

Yes, my first thought was leatherjacket (cranefly larva)  - I squidge them and put them where the blackbirds will find them.  If you have chickens they'll like them 

They eat the roots of your lawn and some other plants.
