Abstract/Contents:The goal of this study was to construct a trap system for adult masked chafer beetles. Based on the abundance of adult beetles, turfgrass managers could assess the risk of white grub damage. Using a volatile sex pheromone from the female beetles, traps were set in roughs surrounding fairways and in home lawn settings. The results from the golf course were inconclusive; no correlation was found between number of adult beetles caught and grub density, possibly due to movement of male and female beetles between roughs and fairways. The home lawn test had slightly better results, athough the correlation was still not strong due to the short test interval. Research into commerical synthesis of the sex pheromone is discussed.
