Have you noticed that your lawn looks damaged and a caterpillar looking creature is crawling around? You may have Army Worms!
Army Worms tend to strike in late summer until the first frost. These pests thrive in warm temperatures! Once it starts becoming colder, thankfully they will no longer survive.
Make sure that you are aware of the signs of Army Worms:
Increased bird activity on your lawn. If you’re wondering why you all of a sudden have birds pecking around, it may be because they’re making a snack out of these worms.
Discolored sod. It may look similar to how it looks when exposed to frost.
Moving Damage. Army Worm damage tends to move from one side of your lawn to the other. This doesn’t always happen like this, but more times than not, this is how you will notice damage.
You’ll especially want to keep an eye out from dusk til dawn! Army Worms may not be seen mid-day or early afternoon, which causes homeowners to believe that none of these pesky pests are present. However, damage can happen overnight.
Be sure to call us at the first sign of what you believe to be Army Worms. The sooner we can get to you, the less damage they can do and the more likely your lawn is to recover.
