217 Symposium--Turfgrass Insect Management: New and Emerging Issues

Oral Session
C05 Turfgrass Science
The climates of temperate and subarctic regions have become increasingly hospitable to insects that have not existed there previously.  Changes and shifts in the range of turfgrass insect pests have raised concerns about the responses of indigenous insect species and about the risk of invasion by these new species, which could disrupt normal turfgrass ecosystem functions.

Approved for 2.0 IPM CEUs.
