USGA Summary Points:Grub species and associated pathogens and parasitoids were surveyed on 27 Kentucky golf courses, the first such study in the transitional climactic zone. Masked chafers and Japanese beetle grubs accounted for about 66 and 30% of the grub infestations, respectively. Insect-pathogenic nematodes, Tiphia wasps, milky disease, and other pathogens account for moderate to high natural mortality at some sites. Nematodes isolated from MC and JB grubs are currently being identified. Turfgrass species and mowing height influence incidence of grubs and natural enemies. Pathogens of JB grubs are being surveyed across the eastern and central United States to determine if natural enemy load can predict area-wide cycles of decline of grub populations.
