USGA Summary Points:Three years of research on a naturally-occurring insect virus showed that it has excellent potential as a bio-insecticide for black cutworms on golf courses. Biological studies of an egg parasite of cut blackworms were initiated that may point to ways that these beneficial natural controls can be augmented or conserved. Field studies on nest location and life history of mound-building ants provided new insights for managing these pests on golf courses. Control actions should be initiated in early spring as soon as mounds appear and focus on the perimeter of sand-based greens.
