Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "identify the billbug species complex present on bermudagrass and its seasonality in golf courses in north-central and southern Florida and to determine how long hunting billbugs require for development." Concludes from the study that "Hunting billbug is the most abundant and damaging billbug species in warm-season grasses. Bermudagrass can tolerate a large hunting billbug population before noticeable damage occurs. Proper monitoring and identification of this pest can prevent turf loss and costly renovation. Overseeding or planting a pure stand of endophytic turfgrass has a strong likelihood of preventing serious outbreaks of hunting billbug."
