Chlonlane, aldrin, dieldrin, and heptachlor have been used extensively to protect lawns, golf courses, and other types of turf in Ohio from injury by Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman. Depending upon the rate, protection for 3 or more years could be obtained with these insecticides. Chlordane was used successfully to control Japanese beetle grubs in the fairways of the golf course at The College of Wooster (CW), Wooster, Ohio, for about 14 years. In 1970, infestations of grubs were noted in the fairways in spite of the applications. Beginning in the spring of 1970, the applications of chlordane (5–8 lb AI/acre) were increased to 1 each spring anti fall in an effort to control the grubs. However, samples taken May 25, 1972, from various fairways of the golf course showed that a larval population of 10–20/ft2 existed. The study reported here was conducted to determine whether the poor control achieved could he attributed to development of resistance to chlordane in the population.
