Notes on the Species of White Grubs Present in the Saratoga Forest Tree Nursery
Damage from white grubs (June-beetle larvae) in forest tree nurseries is a problem of long standing. Variation in extent of damage from one year to another and in different localities, due to the rather complex life-histories of the insects involved, has increased the difficulty of working out satisfactory control programs. This article, based on six years of observation at the Saratoga nursery of the New York State Conservation Department, shows the rather large number of species which have been responsible for damage during this period, describes easily recognized characteristics which seem to differentiate the various beetle larvae, and points out the fact that certain species which have received little or no attention in this field may be even more serious in their effect than those of the well-known genus Phyllophaga.
