Abstract/Contents:The purpose of the present research was to test the field efficacy of various insecticides in controlling a mixed population of 3rd instar larvae of Phyllophaga crinita and Cyclocephala lurida in irrigated bermudagrass turf. Plots were established on a white grub infested, continuous stand of irrigated, low-thatch bermudagrass. Spray treatments were diluted with sufficient water (pH 8.3) to yield 7 liters of material that was then applied with a plastic sprinkler can. Granular treatments were shaken onto the turf from a glass jar with a perforated lid. All treatments reduced the population density of white grubs. Diazinon 5G, included in this test as a standard, continues to be effective for white grub control, but it was not as effective as were lambda-cyhalothrin or Dyfonate. No treatment-related phytotoxicity was detected in any plots.
