Abstract/Contents:"The changing environmental conditions in more recent years has impacted the historically minimal insect pressure in the Pacific Northwest. As a result, increased insect populations have threatened the sustainability of turfgrass in Oregon and Washington regions. The objective of this project is to access the diversity, flight duration, and distribution of destructive turfgrass insects across Oregon and Washington. Data were collected from Spring through Fall 2021 and 2022 at golf courses in Portland, Oregon and the following Washington cities: Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, and Vancouver. The experiment will be repeated in 2023 during the same period. Insects were collected from blacklight traps at each location every three days. Soil samples and playing surface scouting was also done to collect soil larvae and adults, respectively. Findings have shown that there are a variety of different destructive turfgrass pests were found in Oregon and Washington. Examples included, cutworms, Noctuidae family, found in Oregon and Washington. Winter cutworm, Noctua pronuba, and black cutworm, Agrotis ipsilon, were frequently found in Washington and Oregon. European chafer, Rhizotrogus majalis, was found in only Washington, specifically the Tacoma and Seattle locations. Denver billbugs, Sphenophorus cicastristriatus, and Kentucky bluegrass billbug, Sphenophorus parvulus, were found in Washington and Oregon. As a result of this work, we are encouraging superintendents to scout for cutworm and billbugs because it appears to be more problematic than previously anticipated. We are also encouraging superintendents to continue scouting for European chafer because we anticipate an increasing distribution pattern across Washington and Oregon."
