European Chafer Beetle Invasion !!

Post date: Mar 6, 2011 7:10:44 AM

A lot of us have been invaded by this destructive beetle. You will know if you have it if your turf is being dug up by crows.

The City of Burnaby has a VERY good website with information on the European chafer turf pest including the efficacy of treatments, precautions, about the contaminated soil as well as ideas for alternative ground covers. Some of our local garden stores are also offering chafer clinics.
