Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate the potential of various isolates of B. popilliae for controlling P. crinita white grubs in turf." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the experiment was in a randomized complete block design, with three replications, four treatments, and 12 insects per treatment group. Reports that "One grub exposed to B. popilliae sports from the Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman became infected; no other insects in the experiment displayed symptoms, and none had spore in their haemolymph." Concludes that " it appears that none of the test strains of B. popilliae is sufficiently effective against P. crinita white grubs."
