Abstract/Contents:Profiles the annual bluegrass weevil, highlighting potential methods of control and prevention. States that "as its name implies, the annual bluegrass weevil, Listronotus maculicollis (formerly called Hyperodes maculicollis), principally feeds as larvae on annual bluegrass." Details the life cycle of the annual bluegrass weevil, stating that "adults mostly overwinter in protected areas along the edge of woods or in the rough. During the spring, adults migrate onto golf courses, where they feed on grass blades before mating and laying eggs within the stem of Poa annua." Mentions control using a pyrethroid spray, stating that "this approach no longer works on some courses." Suggests that "some challenges for managing annual bluegrass weevil are related to targeting." Discusses possible alternatives to pyrethroid sprays and the use of nematodes for biological control.
