Abstract/Contents:Profiles white grubs in the northeastern United States, describing them as "the most widespread and destructive turfgrass pests" in the area. Reports that "until recently, the Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica) was regarded as the key species, but surveys have indicated that the oriental beetle, [Anomala (=Exomala) orientalis] has become the most important white grub species in New Jersey and some neighboring areas." Notes variations found among species during their egg-laying period and third larval stage. Focuses on signs of infestation, potential means of early detection, and methods of control, distinguishing between preventative and curative methods. Suggests specifically that "because of their long residual in the soil, the neonicotinoids imidacloprid (Merit) and clothianidin (Arena), and the insect growth regulator halofenozide (Mach2), can be applied as early as May and June, repectively, to provide season-long white grub control." Advises that "once the grubs have reached the 3rd [third] instar, they are much harder to control." Identifies the organophosphates trichlorfon (Dylox) and the carbamate carbaryl (Sevin) as the only two synthetic insecticides labeled for grub control as of May 2006.
