Abstract/Contents:Presents an experiment conducted to determine "which Phyllophaga species typically infest bermudagrass turf in Oklahoma golf courses"; "the average proportion of southern masked chafer/Phyllophaga grubs in managed turfgrass"; and "the seasonal flight patterns of turf-infesting Phyllophaga beetles in Oklahoma." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that researchers "placed one ultraviolet light trap with a U-shaped bulb at each of the seven cooperating golf courses to collect adult beetles" and also collected grub larvae. Reports that "the most consistently collected larvae in turf were P. crassissima and P. calceata, yet P. calceata adults were collected in one location, and in very small numbers." States that "some Phyllophaga species fly in April and May, others fly in May and June, still others fly in June and July and a few fly in June, July, and August." Concludes that researchers "recommend that the optimal time for applying a preventive white grub treatment in Oklahoma should be June 1 through July 1, which should control most of the turf-infesting May or June beetles that occur in Oklahoma and should be ideal for controlling southern masked chafer grubs."
