Mealybugs generally aren’t a problem in turf, which is why this species caught the eyes of entomologists in Florida when it began infesting and damaging zoysiagrass. The tuttle mealybug is actually a native species, says Lyle Buss, manager of the insect identification lab at University of Florida. “It can cause some serious damage where it kills patches of grass, and you’ll notice it from brown patches or thinning out in the lawn,” he says. The other common name for this pest is rice mealybug, and it was actually discovered in the U.S. in the late 1960s, infesting bermudagrass seed crops in Arizona. It was detected in California in 1970, and also in Texas, but it’s a problem mostly in southeastern states. You can identify the insects by their tiny 2-mm pink bodies – they are difficult to spot in the turf because they surround themselves with a white, waxy material. They tuck in between younger leaf blades and the stem. Tuttle mealybugs seem to prefer ‘Empire’ zoysiagrass that is in lawns installed in the last two years.
Control methods can include some plant systemic products such as neonicotinoids that will reach the insects where they are feeding. In severe cases, lawn replacement with another type of grass might be necessary to avoid reinfestation. “If you really want to stick with zoysiagrass, you’ll have to treat with an insecticide,” Buss says.
