Abstract Grubs, larvae of chafers, as a group are a major pest throughout the world. In Europe, the major species attacking agricultural and horticultural crops, is probably the cockchafer (Melolontha melolontha). In Ukraine, damage caused by the grubs of the cockchafer is increasing in outside crops. Particularly strawberries, but also vegetable crops, meadows and ornamental plant production, like rose bushes, can be seriously attacked. The research should ultimately result in a strategy that is effective in reducing the damage as well as cost effective. It should also be environmentally sound and fitting into current Ukrainian regulations. New control methods will possibly require adaptation of existing regulations/laws. Project experts should prepare advice to Ukrainian authorities on how to adapt the current legislation to incorporate the new strategy to fight cockchafer damage (May beetle)
