|13 fairway with stress areas|
|The white dots are the ataenius grubs|
The larvae feed on the roots of the plant and allow you to pull the turf right up when you grab it. You can see in the above photo how I rolled it back. By eating the roots and cutting them off they prevent the turf from being able to take up water and thus the areas look like the are drought stressed the same as summer.
We spot treated all of the areas and then fertilized to get proper re-growth and healthy turf before we go into winter.
