Abstract/Contents:"Studies of three insect pests in South Africa, a native mole cricket, Gryllotalpa africana Palisot de Beauvois, Aphodius grubs, Aphodius pseudolividus Balthasar, and a rove beetle, Neosorius brevipennis Fagel have revealed a similar ecology and impact on turfgrass as compared to related species on turfgrass in the U. S. The mole crickets construct a tunnel structure similar to that observed in the southeastern U. S. While mole cricket females were attracted to a synthetic acoustic sound trap, there were no apparent peak periods of attraction. The similarities of distribution of life stages found in the summer reflect similar trends with mole cricket development in the southeastern U. S. Populations of rove beetles appear on putting greens, collars, and approaches and produced as many as nine 'pushups' or soil mounds per cup cutter. The number of mounds indicate a common tunnel structure for the population. Most adults and larvae were found in the first 75 mm of soil below the surface. Aphodius grubs were observed causing severe damage to creeping bentgrass putting greens with populations as high as 29 grubs in a standard cup cutter sample (10.8 cm diameter). Populations at this level caused significant turfgrass injury while populations below 10 grubs per cup cutter core produced little visable turfgrass injury."
