Abstract/Contents:"As is the case with the Japanese beetle, the turf injury caused by this insect is the result of feeding habits of its grubs or larvae. The adult southern June bug appears late in June or early in July, lays its eggs in the soil and in the middle of August the grubs have hatched from the eggs and are feeding vigorously on the grass roots, thus injuring the turf. The grubs continue to feed on the roots until cold weather comes, when they burrow further into the soil to a depth of about 6 inches and become inactive. In the southern part of their range during mild winters, they may continue to feed throughout the winter months and may seriously injure turf even in mid-winter. Like the Japanese beetle grubs, they may be controlled with arsenate of lead applied at the rate of 5 to 10 pounds to 1,000 square feet. In sandy soil even a 3 pound rate has been effective."
