About this book

The highly anticipated second edition of this best-selling Handbook of Turfgrass Insects contains the most current, thorough, and practical information covering all aspects of turfgrass insect management in a streamlined format. All major insect pests and mites of warm- and cool-season turfgrasses in the United States are addressed. Extensive use of color photos of various insects and the turf damage they cause along with illustrations of insect life stages in their actual size, life cycle charts, and distribution maps aid in accurate identification and diagnostics.

From diagnostics to important chapters on the principles of sampling and monitoring, integrated turfgrass pest management, use of insecticides, insecticide resistance management, classes of pesticides, environmental issues, microbial and biological control, and beneficial and innocuous invertebrates in turf, Handbook of Turfgrass Insects delivers a single source go-to guide for preventing and solving turfgrass insect problems.

Editors Rick Brandenburg and Callie Freeman have identified experts to cover the insects inconcise, yet complete, individual sections that provide essential information on the key turfgrass pests that can damage golf courses and the turfgrasses found in commercial, residential, and sports settings. The benefit of having many authors involved in the creation of Handbook of Turfgrass Insects is that each section is written by the leading expert on that pest. No other turfgrass insect resource incorporates the cumulative knowledge or the breadth of experience of the experts found here. The scientists who study these pests have brought Handbook of Turfgrass Insects, Second Edition, up to date with 16 years of new knowledge, including coverage of additional insects and effective new management strategies to make it even more useful than the popular first edition.

The first edition is used by many of the top turfgrass training programs, and this new edition is designed to be utilized by a broad range of users, including commercial lawn care professionals, golf course superintendents, sports turf managers, grounds maintenance personnel, sod producers, consultants, students, extension agents, pesticide applicators, master gardeners, teachers, students, entomologists, plant scientists, and anyone involved in the cultivation and care of fine turf. Libraries with collections in agronomics, entomology, horticulture, and the plant sciences will want to include Handbook of Turfgrass Insects, Second Edition, in their collections. A helpful glossary, index, and sources of local information are also included.
