Abstract/Contents:"The distribution of granular pesticides, used to control insects in turfgrass, may influence the pesticide hazard to birds foraging for food; however, there is little information on the exposure of birds to granules applied to turfgrass. Granules were spread onto golf course greens [Creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris 'Penncross')], fairways [perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) and annual bluegrass (Poa annua)], and roughs [Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis)]. Granule height in the grass profile was measured and granules visible from above were counted. Within one hour after application, granules in the rough were less visible (15%) than those on the fairway (38%) or on the green (67%). Irrigation (4 mm) decreased the percentage of granules visible from above to 7% for the rough, 20% for the fairway, and 46% for the green. After irrigation, granules in the rough were higher (mean height 9 mm) above the soil surface than were granules applied to fairways (6 mm) and greens (4 mm). The most likely place for waterfowl to be exposed to granular insecticides is on the fairways, where the birds' habit of grazing to a height of 10 to 20 mm would expose them to 1 to 15% of the applied granules if they feed soon after an irrigation following granule application."
