Entomology Update from the Turfgrass Entomology Lab at PSU
May 21, 2015We have had a rapid change in the development of our ABW populations in PA since my last blog entry (though it appears we are in a slight cool down at the moment). Early instar larvae were abundant in samples from across the state mid-week last week (May 13th). Our plant indicators that signal optimal larvicide timing (Rhododendron catawbiense – which I have been misspelling for a long time) have gone into full bloom in a relatively short time frame. If you are intending on putting down a larvicide, now would be a good time, as the population of larvae residing in the plant are beginning to appear in the soil.
