Much of managing insect and disease in the landscape is weather dependent. The level of rainfall, temperatures and many other factors affect what type of season it will be for different pests and diseases. The two insects we constantly battle in this area are white grubs and adult Japanese beetles. White grubs feed on plant roots and organic matter in the soil, especially under turfgrass. This feeding may result in dead patches of turf that can be picked up like a loose carpet. The white grub is the most destructive turf insect in Illinois. The adult Japanese beetle eats the leaves and flowers of over 300 plants by eating the tissue between the veins, a type of feeding called skeletonizing. The adult Japanese beetle is a serious defoliator of many ornamental plants. Our plant health-care technicians remedy these insect problems during the course of the summer with an integrated pest management plan.
