Turfgrass Entomology (ground)
|Ground Beetles are of the family Carabidae and generalist predators. They prey primarily on all sorts of insects but will also eat non - insect small organisms. There are over 2,000 species in North America. Adults range in size from as small as 3mm and up to 40mm. They will be common anywhere they can have undisturbed or lightly disturbed soil, mulch, leaf litter, etc to overwinter in. The area must also be free of soil insecticides to sustain a viable population.
