Common Turfgrass Insects & Mites

Several insects and mites feed on turfgrass but only a few cause enough economic or aesthetic damage to warrant control. The following pages provide descriptions of arthropod pests of turf and the damage they cause. Most of these pests occur in isolated infestations across the South each year. The most common situation is to find one or two of these pests during any one growing season while others occur only sporadically.
