Generalist predators and predation of black cutworm Agrotis ipsilon larvae in close mown creeping bentgrass
Florida Entomologist 94 (3), 714-715
Abstract: Night surveys of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) putting greens and close-mown research plots yielded 8 taxa of generalist arthropod predators, mainly ants and predatory beetles. Predatory beetles and ants were also observed attacking sentinel black cutworm larvae on bentgrass putting greens. Also these predators have been commonly reported in previous studies in turfgrass.
