Diazinon 5G (6.72 kg [AIl/ha), isofenphos 5G and 2F (2.24 kg [AIl/ha), and isazophos IG and IE (2.24 kg [AIl/ha) were applied on 11 dates to golf-course turf in Bolton, Mass., to determine the effect of timing of application on effectiveness against Popillia Japonica Newman grubs. Plots were sampled 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks after application. Level of control generally was isazophos IE > isofenphos 2F = isazophos IG > isofenphos 5G > diazinon 5G. For many sampling dates, treatments did not differ significantly; isazophos IE, however, consistently resulted in the highest level of grub mortality. Weather conditions during the study suggest that a thorough application of water or heavy spring rainfall at the time of chemical application are important factors enhancing insecticidal activity.
