Abstract/Contents:"The fairway consisted primarily of annual bluegrass (50%) and creeping bentgrass (50%). Treatment plots were 9 X 6 ft, arranged in a randomized complete block design and replicated 3 times. Liquid formulations were applied by using a CO2 sprayer with 4 8004VS TeeJet nozzles mounted on a 6 ft boom, operating at 28 psi, and delivering 5 gal/1000 ft2. Granular formulations were applied with a hand held shaker and mixed with top-dressing sand to facilitate product distribution. At treatment time (5 Oct), the following soil and environmental conditions existed: air temperature, 68° F; soil temperature at 1 inch depth, 62° F; soil temperature at 2 inch depth, 62° F; RH, 65%; amount of thatch, 0.125 inches; soil type, sandy loam; soil particle size analysis: 24.2 % sand, 71.1 % silt, 4.7 % clay; soil moisture (oven baked), 30.5%; organic matter, 5.0 %; water pH, 7.0; soil pH, 5.8: and cloudy skies. Immediately after treatment, Dylox 9.2G and Sevin 7.15G were watered in with 0.25 inches of water. Twelve hours after treatment all treatments were irrigated with 0.25 inches of water. Posttreatment counts were made 4 d later (9 Oct). The total number of new freshly constructed green June beetle burrows were recorded from each replicate (54 ft2). Five treatments provided significant control. No phytotoxicity was noted."
