Large scale cultivation of turf grasses in South Africa is a comparatively new venture which is besetï¿½ with many problems. The study of its entomological problems shows that many insects, previously considered harmless, have now assumed new roles in that they have become serious pests. A recent example of this concerns a Coccid, which has been reported from golf courses in Natal, and at present seems to be confined to a narrow coastal strip between Mount Edgecombe and Umkomaas.
