They are not extinct - or "instinct" either.203.184.41.226 (talk) 00:13, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Leaks?[edit]

"Once caught the grubs leak a brown water juice over fingers when held". Apart from the poor grammar, what does this mean? Does the grub defecate or actually "leak"?203.184.41.226 (talk) 00:14, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Killing wattles[edit]

Wattle trees are short lived. That is known in the literature, and I have found it from experience - in New Zealand, where we do not have Witchetty grubs. The trees short life spans have nothing to do with Witchetty grubs. Furthermore the sentence "and are attributed as the reason why wattles die within 10 to 15 years" is appalling English. I suggest its deletion.Royalcourtier (talk) 18:32, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
