In the 7th edition of the "Turf Management Report" sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Pam Charbonneau reports on:
New on the insect front this week are European chafer flights. They began roughly a week ago and were pretty much right on time. Flights have been heavy all week. I have spent roughly a half hour every night over the last week at dusk observing the adult emergence and flights. I really should get a life. I think people are surprised at how many adults are flying, but that is usually the situation in a wet year. The grubs were there, but there was very little turf damage.
