Written by three of the top professionals in the turfgrass field, Managing Turfgrass Pests provides hundreds of pest management methods in a single volume and emphasizes management as the major thrust of control. Development of cultural methods for control of individual pests, chemical control methods, and detailed descriptions of individual pests in each section are followed by extensive cultural management tips. Find out how to accurately diagnose the onset of infestation; how to identify pests and gain knowledge of their cycles, when and where they attack, and the damage they leave in their wakes; and how to control them using a variety of detailed options. The book includes 24 pages of more than 90 full-color photographs of grasses and insects and is also illustrated with more than 160 detailed drawings of weeds and insects.

Review:

This is one of the few books I have come across that incorporates in the one volume the three sections of turfgrass pests - weeds, insects and diseases.
- D. Howard, New Zealand Turf Culture Institute

As an educator, I found the book to be useful because it pulls together the three major areas of turfgrass pest management into a single source. There are many individual texts available on turfgrass weeds, diseases, and insects, but their combined cost makes them impractical for a survey course that covers all three areas. The book also would make a useful addition to the personal libraries of turfgrass professionals and should find a ready audience in the golf course and lawn care industries.
- HortScience, Volume 30, Number 7, December 1995
