Abstract/Contents:Describes how "over the last decade, the annual bluegrass weevil has become one of the most destructive and difficult to manage insect pests on golf courses." Details the "best 'management option' for resistant annual bluegrass weevil populations." Mentions the "goal is to optimize insecticide efficacy while reducing selection pressure for insecticide resistance by minimizing applications, especially of pyrethroid insecticides and rotating insecticide mode-of-action, ideally targeting other likely pest problems with the same application, and using compounds that minimize the impact on beneficial predators." Lists the alternatives to pyrethroids. Concludes that "pyrethroid-susceptible populations can be managed, but avoiding development of resistance will require knowledgeable superintendents, scouting for annual bluegrass weevil life stages, and the wise use of pesticides."
