Question:In some of our fairways there are many patches of dead turf where grubs have eaten the roots. I should appreciate your suggestions for repairing this damage and preventing similar grub injury in the future.

Answer/Response:The injured areas should be seeded as soon as possible and rolled with a spike roller or raked lightly to work the seed into the soil and to aid in germination. If the beetles are abundant generally it would be well to poison all the fairways with arsenate of lead. A rate of five pounds to 1,000 square feet (200 pounds to the acre) is recommended. On some soils this is ample, but on other soils heavier applications may be necessary. If the grubs are found to be actve after the treatment, it is an indication that the rate was insufficient for your soil. However, another application may be made before serious injury to turf develops. The effectiveness of the first application may be determined by lifting sods in several places in areas where beetles have been numerous.
