Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine identity and incidence of pathogens and parasitoids of Japanese beetle (JB) and masked chafer (MC) grubs on golf courses across Kentucky." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "two years of rating skunk damage showed greatest foraging in creeping bentgrass and perennial ryegrass at fairway height."

USGA Summary Points:Masked chafers and Japanese beetles accounted for about 66 and 30% of the grub infestations, respectively, on surveyed Kentucky golf courses. Tiphia wasps, milky disease, and other pathogens accounted for moderate to high natural mortality at some sites. Nematodes isolated from masked chafer and Japanese beetles grubs, and a protozoan pathogen (Stichospora sp.), are being evaluated as potential bio-insecticides. Turfgrass species and mowing height affected the species makeup of grubs and natural enemies. Skunk foraging damage was greatest in cool-season grasses at fairway height and least in warm-season grasses despite the presence of grubs. Japanese beetle grubs surveyed across the easter and central United States showed a trend for higher pathogen loads in eastern states with longer history of infestation than in central or Midwestern states.
