[OPEN] [ECO] Disappearing Grubs

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? EP09
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except the star wars one.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to have grubs, and get them ready for harvest.
What happens when the bug occurs? The grubs disappear, and the mitey mitey home is empty.
What do you expect to see? Grubs in the “thriving” State.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

My Grubs often just disappear even though they are thriving, and well fed. Sometimes they even disappear while i try to nurture them, without any reason.


it costs simoleons to get new ones, and it’s annoying that it happens so often, when my sim is trying to live as cheap as possible.

Re: Disappering Grubs

@NannaSne Do they die or just disappear ? Seems you have to feed them a lot.

Good Luck

They disappear, they dont die.

I take care of them almost all the time in a sim hour, and all of a sudden theyre just gone, even though they are thriving and well fed :-(

I also have this problem. I use grubs because I'm not fond of all those bug legs. But they keep disappearing. Sometimes they last 4-5 days, but just now, they disappeared only a brief moment after I purchased them. Grr, you know?


I have all available packs and kits installed and my game is repaired and up-to-date. It happens both with and without mods. My Sim is living in Port Promise, Evergreen Harbor. The neighborhood that shipped with Eco Lifestyle.

Issue is still present. One of the main new additions of a 40$ pack and that's broken...

I had this happen today with my crickets, it's really annoying too because I'm trying to get bio fuel and the insect farms are the only way to do that it seems and my insects keep disappearing.

Still happening. My sim had crickets, they were thriving, they harvested the flour and then they disappeared. Have bought them three times now - happens every time.

I wasn't having this problem, now I am having the problem after the update for infants.  I feed every day, then going to nurture, and the bugs disappear.

I just restarted my game and mine are gone. Yesterday I had thriving, well fed beetles and grubs, today nothing.
