White Grub Management with Nikki Hendrickson

On our first episode of the Around the Turf Scene Podcast, Nikki Hendrickson joins Rusty to discuss white grub management in turfgrass. Control options for preventing white grubs include imidacloprid (Merit), clothianidin (Arena), and chlorantraniliprole (Acelepryn), and curative treatment options include trichlorfon (Dylox) and carbaryl (Sevin). Tune in to learn about application timing, insecticide resistance, pheromone traps, scouting for beetle populations, and how to decide whether or not to treat.
