Abstract/Contents:The purpose of the present research was to determine the effect of placement of test cages on an open bench (versus in the soil) on cage temperatures and on the distribution and the impact of P. crinita and C. immaculata white grubs in the cages. A multiple analysis of variance confirmed that the vertical distribution of larvae in the cages was influenced by the species of the insect and the location of the cage (on bench versus buried in the soil). It also indicated that the mean distance of larvae from the nearest part of the cage wall (radial depth) was significantly affected by the placement of the cage (table versus soil) and by the lateral part of the cage. Future research should focus on developing test cage conditions that mimic the essential aspects of natural field conditions closely.
