Abstract/Contents:Profiles true white grubs and emerald ash borers, stating that "true white grubs...[have been] damaging turf in Illinois." States that "true white grubs that attack turf heavily in Illinois usually emerge as adults in May." Describes their life cycle, stating that "true white grubs hatch in June and July and feed on the roots of turfgrass into fall." States that "damage to turfgrass most frequently occurs during the second year when the grubs are large and feeding occurs from spring to fall." Discusses control of true white grubs, stating that "insecticidal nematodes are usually more effective against these large grubs than are insecticides." Also discusses a study on emerald ash borers, stating that "imidacloprid basal drenches have given a very high level of control and restored ash trees to excellent health, even in heavily infested areas."
