USGA Summary Points:Parasitic wasps belonging to three different families were discovered attacking BCW eggs or larvae, causing mortality as high as 27% A baculovirus isolated from BCW cadavers has the potential to provide season-long BCW control from a single application. Studies to characterize its activity, host range, residual activity, and potential as a bio-insecticide are planned for 2004. Mound activity of Lasius neoniger ants started in late winter, peaked in May, and declined steadily thereafter. Nearly all mounds on sand-based greens were located within two meters of the outer edge. Lasius queens were active in late summer with synchronized emergence periods. Queen behavior was observed and photographed. Planting peonies as a nectar source for spring-active Tiphia wasps significantly increased parasitism rates of white grubs in nearby turf.
