Abstract/Contents:"The Japanese beetle is still the single most important turfgrass damaging insect in New England. However, the Oriental beetle is fast becoming the second most important pest of turfgrasses on the East Coast from North Carolina to Massachusetts (and possibly further north). The Oriental beetle was introduced into Connecticut probaly from Japan in balled nursery stock around 1920. The larvae of the Oriental beetle look exactly like the larvae of Japanese beetles except for a series of spines on the raster that are visible only with a hand lens or microscope." Subtopics include; seasonal history and habits, monitoring and control of adult beetles, natural enemies, larval control (biological), larval control (cultural), and larval control (chemical).
