USGA Summary Points:Flight periods of Tiphia species attacking Japanese beetle and masked chafer grubs were determined. Grub parasitism rates on golf courses ranged from 15-22% Range of grub species parasitized by each Tiphia species was determined. Once parasitized, grubs quit feeding on grass roots and move deeper into the soil. Wildflower plantings were not effective for attracting Tiphia, but the wasps could be attracted to an area with sugar water sprays.
