Turfgrass Insects of the United States and Canada

This chapter identifies minor insect pests. Many turfgrass insects and mites are considered major pests, either because they are troublesome on a regular basis over a wide geographic area or cause significant damage in a limited geographic area. Another group of insects and mites become turfgrass pests only occasionally, or if they occur regularly, their activities usually produce only minor injury. These are designated as minor turfgrass pests. Several such pests are discussed here, listed in the same sequence of orders as the major pests. These include northern mole and short-tailed crickets; grasshoppers, bermudagrass and turfgrass scales; burrowing sod webworms; sugarcane and carrot beetles; vegetable weevils; and March flies.

Keywords:   minor turfgrass pests, turfgrass insects, turfgrass mites, turfgrass pests, crickets, grasshoppers, bermudagrass scale, turfgrass scale, vegetable weevils, March flies
