Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass mite causes thinned and weakened bermudagrass turf. Since bermudagrass mites live under the leaf sheaths in gall-like structures on bermudagrass shoots, physical removal of turf by scalping (i.e., removing aboveground green plant tissue) may remove mite populations. Miticides currently used to manage bermudagrass mite are expensive, inconsistent, and harmful to the environment, including natural enemies. Scalping turfgrass has potential as an alternative to chemical control or to be combined with chemical control. A study was conducted to determine the effect of scalping and miticide application on bermudagrass mite populations and damage. Mite-infested bermudagrass pots were scalped, treated with miticide, both scalped and treated with miticide, or left unscalped and untreated. Miticide application occurred biweekly for four total applications, starting one week after scalping treatments were administered. The number of mite-infested shoots in bermudagrass pots were then recorded biweekly. Infested shoots were collected monthly to count mite populations. Scalping or miticide application provided control of bermudagrass mite, and miticide application was more effective than scalping. In combination, scalping reduced mite damage on miticide-treated bermudagrass compared to chemical treatment alone. This research suggests that scalping can provide an alternative control strategy that avoids the negative consequences of miticide use. Also, scalping may be used before miticide application as part of an integrated management strategy."
