What harm do Armyworms cause?
Armyworms will eat every part of the grass blade—right down to just the beginning of the root, just leaving particles of chewed leaves. It is not uncommon for a collection of armyworms to destroy an entire lawn within a few days. As the armyworms feed, they leave brown patches in the lawn that can appear to look like heat, drought, or chemical stress.
What are Armyworms and where do they come from?
The fall armyworm is the caterpillar of a moth that arrives in Georgia almost every year from Florida. Traveling via weather fronts, these moths spend the spring and summer traveling from south to north gradually infesting our entire state.
How can we eliminate Armyworms?
Falling Leaves can terminate the armyworms on contact with one treatment of liquid insecticide. We will treat all lawn areas as armyworms will travel to a lawn area that is not treated. Once applied, we suggest that people and pets STAY OFF YOUR LAWN for 2 hours to allow the insecticide to be effective and to dry completely.
