Abstract

Pasture damage due to cockchafer beetles has been recorded in parts of the South-West and Great Southern for the past 50 years, but it is only in the last few seasons that the pest has assumed serious proportions. The first really disturbing reports of pasture cockchafer activity came from the Kojonup district in the winter of 1955, and inspections showed that the insect was common from Boyup Brook to Katanning and down as far as Mt. Barker.
