Abstract:Flooding experiments were conducted under simulated and actual field conditions to determine flooding mortality of grubs in Florida sugarcane. The sequence of flood tolerance of Ligyrus subtropicus Blatchley was adults > eggs > larvae and pupae. Increased water temperature significantly increased flooding mortality of L. subtropicus grubs. A second grub species, Cyclocephala parallela Casey, was more flood tolerant than L. subtrapicus.
