Fifteen insecticides were evaluated at various rates for control of a complex of white grubs, including Bothynus subtropicus Blatchley, Strategus antaeus (F.), Phyllophaga sp., and Cyclocephala parallela (Casey), on 'Tifway' bermudagrass, Cynadon × magenissii Hurcombe, in Florida during 1975–77. C. parallela was the dominant species in all tests. Consistent control was obtained with carbofuran, fonofos, and isazofos. A maximal population of 82 grubs/0.09m2 was sampled in 1976.
