Chafers – A slow shift to Northern hatching?

You’ll remember that most sightings of our winged friends, chafer grubs have been around the South of England, as the heat map below shows.

Welsh Chafers

This week we have had a few sightings of Welsh Chafer logged on the Syngenta PestTracker around the Colchester and Cambridge area.

This isn’t a significant shift in area but could it be the beginning of a shift towards the hatching period in the Midlands or further North?

Either way if you’re a site with historic damage or a concern about the damage from Chafer grubs, now is the time to be applying Acelepryn.

The key to success is ensuring it is fully watered into the area of soil that the chafers are laying.
