As there is no record of infection induced by entomopathogenic fungi in white grubs
(Melolonthidae) in Brazil, the objective of this study is to evaluate the capacity of O.
Historically, control measures for white grubs
have depended mainly on persistent chemicals, but because of concerns regarding safety and environmental contamination, other forms of control such as biological control have been proposed (3).
scarabaei (Rhabditida: Heterorhabditidae, Steinernematidae) against 12 white grub

Golf courses are especially susceptible to white grubs
because the highly groomed grass is a virtual smorgasbord for the insects, Klein explains.

As we strive to chemically manage them, we will attain a measure of control on the other so called white grubs
Adult vine weevil eat the leaves, the white grubs
feed on the roots causing plants to wilt.
More serious is the damage caused by vine weevil larvae, fat white grubs
which develop in the compost and feed on the roots, eventually causing the death of the plant.
