USGA Summary Points:Research on a naturally-occurring insect virus showed it has excellent potential as a bio-insecticide for black cutworms on golf courses. Studies of a tiny parasitic wasp suggested it is not a good candidate for bio-control of cutworms because parasitized larvae grow larger and eat more before they are killed. Silicon fertilization, which enhances resistance of some grasses to diseases, did not increase resistance of creeping bentgrass to insect pests. Field studies on life history of moundbuilding ants suggests control actions should start in early spring as soon as mounds appear and focus on the perimeter of sand-based greens.
