Tasmanian Grass Grub
There have been recent reports of pasture damage in the region that have been caused by Tasmanian Grass Grub (TGG). Tararua Heliwork can provide an insecticide control program to help you combat this damaging pest.

TGG larvae resemble common New Zealand grass grubs but behaviourally act more like porina, living in burrows and emerging at night to graze on above ground foliage. They feed on most pasture plants, pasture weeds and brassica seedlings but favour legumes including clovers and lucerne. For more info go to AgPest

If you have any concerns regarding the identification of the Tasmanian Grass Grub phone Tararua Heliwork Limited for a consultation.
