Armyworm Treatment


What are Armyworms?

Despite the name, armyworms are actually caterpillars that grow into moths. In their moth stage, they lay eggs on vertical surfaces, such as a privacy fence. When the eggs hatch, the larva crawl down to your grass and begin to eat. This is when they turn into adult armyworms.

Adult armyworms have a “Y” shape on the back of their heads and three stripes that run down the middle of their bodies.

What Are Signs of Armyworms?

The best way to detect if you have armyworms in your lawn is with a strategy called “scouting.” This means kneeling and inspecting the tops of the grass blades during cooler parts of the day, and near the soil during the hotter parts of the day.

Look for chewed grass, as well as the armyworms themselves. They often travel in large numbers, which can destroy an entire lawn in just a few days!

Note: If you are experiencing problems but don't see armyworms, consider whether you are watering frequently enough or mowing too low.

Waynes Armyworm Treatments

For Waynes current lawn customers, armyworm treatment is covered in your plan. After the treatment, avoid moving and watering your lawn for 3-4 days. This time period allows the armyworms to come in contact with the treatment.

We do not usually treat armyworms preemptively. We use something called Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which means Waynes only uses products when they are needed. We do this to avoid excess chemicals in the environment. We adjust this strategy in areas where armyworms are active.

If you’re needing treatment for armyworms, or think you might have an issue with them, call Waynes! A Waynes Lawn Professional can address the issue and come up with the proper treatment plan for your lawn needs. Contact us here or call us at 866.WAYNES1.
