As ABW season is winding down, consider the following tips:
  • You can get guaranteed control of ABW by following the WeevilTrakSM Annual Bluegrass Weevil Assurance 
  • Growing degree days and phenological indicators are useful guides for tracking life stages, but cannot replace the importance of scouting for determining thresholds 
  • While there are some general similarities among annual bluegrass weevil development, each geography tends to be different as to when it first appears and the level of turf injury caused  
  • Insect developmental stages are a critical piece of information when choosing a product for treatment  
  • Mowing and irrigation play a vital role in determining the success of a treatment application 
  • Resistance management will continue to be an integral part of management programs now and into the future 
  • Sign up for WeevilTrak and/or text messaging alerts to be informed of timing and application recommendations
