Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Evaluate the role of ants as beneficial predators in golf turf: determine the predominant species inhabiting golf courses; and develop tactics for managing mound-building pest ants on putting greens with reduced environmental risk or impact on beneficial species. 2. Investigate synergism between endophyte-enhanced, resistant turfgrasses and bio-rational insecticides for improved management of white grubs and black cutworms. 3. Examine the main and interacting effects of cultural practices (mowing height, irrigation, and N fertilization) on nutritional and defensive characteristics of creeping bentgrass on relative susceptibility to white grubs and black cutworms." Results indicate baits containing avermectin or hydramethylnon "are effective for spot-treating ants in high-profile situations." Also notes that fipronil "was effective for season-long suppression of Lasius nests and mounds on putting greens." Suggests conserving ants on golf greens (except when mounds are intolerable) because they suppress the "eggs and larvae of other insect pests." Also briefly discusses research concerning the use of Tiphia wasps for control of white grubs, the effects of insecticides on native pollinators, use of endophytes to enhance insect control, and whether plant growth regulators "might alter the attractiveness or suitability of the turfgrass as food for plant-feeding insects." This three-year study began in 1998.
