Abstract:The oriental beetle (Anomala orientalis Waterh.) is generally limited to an area within 90 miles of New York City, but the Asiatic garden beetle (Autoserica castanea Arrow) is found at widely separated localities from Massachusetts to Virginia. Both species in the larval or grub stage cause destruction to lawns, but only the Asiatic garden beetle is injurious to plants in the adult stage. Adult feeding of this species is most extensive on ornamental plants and often results in complete defoliation. The grubs of both species in lawns are controlled by an application of 15 pounds of lead arsenate to 1,000 square feet. For the Asiatic garden beetle a spray of 6 pounds of coated lead arsenate to 50 gallons of water, or a pounds of lead arsenate and 2 pounds of flour to 50 gallons of water, is recommended.
