Grub Control

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 3:29 PM

What does the word ‘grub’ bring to mind? Food? To dig up something by the roots? How about an insect larva? Yeah, that’s it. To most people in Kansas, it means the C-shaped larva of beetles called scarabs. Many species of scarabs can be found in Kansas and several of them attack turf grasses. The larvae of “masked chafers” are the annual white grubs associated with turfgrass damage.

On average, eggs deposited by masked chafer beetles, also called May beetles or June bugs, hatch in 10-14 days. Grub development is relatively rapid. By mid-to late September, larvae voraciously feed on root systems causing visible damage to turf. In situations where “perfect stands of turf” are expected, now through mid July is the optimal time to apply insecticides.

What’s
Your Zone?

(MS) — When purchasing plants and trees you may have noticed the tag
lists specific hardiness zones in which the plant should thrive. According
to The National Arbor Day Foundation, the United States and Canada are divided
into 11 areas based on 10 degree Fahrenheit changes in the average annual minimum
temperature. Just remember that other variations, including soil condition,
wind and rainfall, can affect the vitality of trees and plants, so hardiness
zone alone is not indicative of plant survival.
