Bioecology and sustainable management of white grubs
(Coleoptera: Melolonthidae) pest of corn in "El Cielo" Biosphere Reserve, Tamaulipas, Mexico, pp 173-184 In Moron MA, Aragon A.
Structure and composition of the white grub
complex (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in agroecological systems of northern cauca, Colombia.
Melolonthidae larvae have slightly to strongly curved, C-shaped bodies, distinctive legs, and hardened head capsules, and they are referred to as white grubs
As far as interaction between imidacloprid and entomopathogenic nematode is concerned, application on white grubs
larvae and the degree of interactions differs for different nematode species has already been successfully proved (Koppenhofer and Kaya, 1998).
Differences in susceptibility of introduced and native white grub
species to entomopathogenic nematodes from various geographic localities.
The weevils, small white grubs
, feast on the roots and at this time of year with high temperatures and regular watering, plants can produce enough new roots to keep leaf and flowers alive and apparently healthy.
Golf Association, ARS researchers set out to find a better way to battle the white grub
2008) A satisfactory solution to these conflicting demands can be met through developing safer control methods considering the microbial agents like entomopathogenic fungus (EPF) and entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) against white grub
so as to develop a viable, environmentally safe method of management Raid and Cherry (1992)Further, trapping of adult white grub
beetles with light source can also be considered economical over pheromones in the context of multi species situation for the management of adults Shah and Garg 1988.
japonica and other white grub
species, with 10 samples from each site.
For soybeans, Poncho/VOTiVO controls insects including early-season aphids, over-wintering bean leaf beetle, seed corn maggot, grape colaspis, white grub
and other early-season pests.
Each is a white grub
with a dark head that feeds on grass roots at various times during the spring, summer or fall.
As with chinch bugs, the key to a white grub
IPM program is monitoring.
