Abstract/Contents:Presents two studies conducted "to determine whether vacuum sampling with a modified leaf blower/vacuum could provide an efficient, reliable, and nondestructive method for sampling annual bluegrass weevil adults and forecasting larval damage." Details materials and methods used during the experiments, noting that "all study fairways ('blocks') were mixed stands of Poa annua and creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) and had experienced annual bluegrass weevil damage in the previous year." Reports, with regard to the detection of adults and their correlation to larvae, that "in both years of the study, annual bluegrass weevil adults in low densities on fairways were detected by vacuum sampling before full bloom of Forsythia indicated the weevils were present." Also reports, with regard to the second study, that "significant aggregations of adults and larvae occurred on the edges of fairways, confirming that the weevils walk into and distribute through fairways." Provides several charts and graphs illustrating density estimates and patterns of movement. Concludes that "vacuum sampling can be an effective monitoring tool for assessing the presence and density of adult annual bluegrass weevils."
