Turfgrass insect pests were investigated in different turf sod production areas of Korea. Twelve insect pest species of 7 families in 6 orders and one Eriophyidae mite, Aceria zoysiae were collected from turf sod production areas. The zoysiagrass mite was most frequently occurred zoysiagrass sod production areas. Damaged rate by zoysiagrass mite was increased from May to September. Noctuidae (Spodoptera depravata, Agrotis ipsilon and A. segetum) and Pyralidae (Crambus sp.) insect pests in Lepidoptera were attracted in A. ipsilon sex pheromone trap. Eggs and larva of A. ipsilon was the highest occurred August. Zoysiagrass mite and A. ipsilon were main insect pests in turf sod production areas in Korea.

우리나라 잔디재배지역에 발생하는 잔디 해충을 알아보기 위하여 조사를 수행하였다. 6목 7과 12종의 해충과 한 종의 Eriophyidae 응애류인 잔디혹응애(Aceria zoysiae)가 잔디 재배지에서 채집되었다. 잔디혹응애는 한국잔디류(Zoysia spp.) 재배지에서 가장 빈번하게 발생하였고, 피해율은 5월에서 9월로 갈수록 증가하였다. 나비목 밤나방과 해충인 잔디밤나방(Spodoptera depravata)과 검거세미나방(Agrotis ipsilon), 거세미나방(A. segetum), 포충나방과 해충인 포충나방류(Crambus sp.)가 검거세미나방 성페로몬트랩에 유인되었다. 검거세미나방 알과 유충은 8월에 가장 많이 발생하였다. 잔디혹응애와 잔디밤나방이 우리나라 잔디 재배지에서 가장 중요한 해충이었다.
