Abstract/Contents:Summarizes two studies that evaluated chemical control of billbugs in warm-season turfgrass. States that "the objectives of these studies were to determine optimal timing of insecticide applications, to assess insecticides used for billbug management under field conditions, and to determine the lethal dose and lethal concentration of five insecticidal compounds and formulations for hunting billbug adults." Details the studies conducted in 2008 and 2009 on insecticidal products and their effectiveness. Reports that significantly fewer immature billbugs were found in treated plots compared to the control, however, all products failed to reduce the number of adult billbugs in 2009. Concludes that "evaluation of the lethal doses of insecticidal compounds to adult billbugs produced no differences in the activity of bifenthrin and combination products containing bifenthrin," and that "there appeared to be a trend for greater toxicity in the combination products that contain both bifenthrin and a neonicotinoid."
