Protect Your Lawn: Fight Against Armyworms

August 16, 2021, 9:37 am | Lawn & Tree Care

Our area has seen an uptick in armyworms recently, which are small caterpillars that can cause serious damage and put your lawn’s health in danger.

A tell-tale sign of armyworms is small, brown patches of grass in your lawn. These critters are most active at night and attack a variety of crops and grasses. Be on the lookout for them as they can cause damage quickly — sometimes turning lawns brown in mere days.

Armyworms tend to multiply quickly, so you’ll want to act fast. They lay eggs in masses, and after 5-10 days, they hatch and feed for several weeks.

To fight against armyworms and best protect your lawn, we recommend using caterpillar bug killer sprays and pesticides and to spray early in the morning before bees are active. Specific sprays tailored to caterpillars will protect other, beneficial insects in your lawn.
