Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst "to determine the efficacy of the [insecticide] compounds against Japanese beetle (JB) larvae." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "compounds tested were: Acelypryn™ [Acelepryn] (chlorantraniliprole, a newly registered insecticide for use on turfgrass) and Merit™ (imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid long regarded as the 'industry standard' for white grub control)." Reports that "all treatments reduced insect populations significantly relative to the untreated check but the sprayable fomulation of Merit failed to provide an 'agronomically acceptable' level of control."
