2000 Westchester County Golf Course IPM Demonstration Project

Our research to date has not demonstrated the efficacy of Steinernema carpocapsae (Sc) nematodes in controlling the annual bluegrass weevil. In comparison to the 45 private courses in Westchester, county courses operate with three times the traffic, half the staff and a third of the materials and equipment. For three years this project has taught Westchester County's golf course managers to reduce their reliance on pesticides through cutting-edge research and practical hands-on training.
