AFTER INFESTATION

Armyworm Control

Eliminate armyworms already present on your lawn

 

ONE treatment– Our armyworm infestation treatment covers your entire lawn with our commercial-grade liquid insecticide and immediately begins eliminating armyworms on contact.

Elimination treatment– Stop armyworms before complete destruction of your lawn. Our fast-acting formula halts further damage by beginning to terminate them on contact.

Damage control– Catching your armyworm problem early is crucial to minimizing the damage done to your lawn. It only takes a few days for armyworms to completely destroy your lawn, so you need to act quickly!

The Bottom Line– This treatment option is retroactive, designed to eliminate armyworms that have already infested your lawn.

Please note that while both of these treatment options are extremely effective, they will not repair your grass that has already been damaged by armyworms.

 

How Do You Know If You Have Armyworms?

Here are a few things to look out for–
  • Small brown lawn patches are often the first clue of an armyworm problem.
  • Grass blades are ragged or chewed (creating a transparent “windowpane" look).
  • Your lawn looks like it is moving.
  • Your lawn is dying extremely fast.
  • Many birds, skunks, and rodents feed on armyworms– any of these critters or evidence of them appearing on your lawn may indicate that they have found armyworms to feed on.
  • You see armyworms crawling on your lawn.

What are Armyworms?


Well, funny you should ask. Technically, armyworms are caterpillars. Their life cycle begins as an armyworm, and they eventually turn into moths. Armyworms are destructive pests that consume turf grasses, but they'll feed on vegetables and other plants when food is scarce. The worm-like larvae stage causes the most damage, running through food at a remarkable pace. They are known to move in large numbers and quickly eat through their food supply, devouring grasses, grain crops, and more.

To give you an idea of how fast their destruction can be...When large numbers are present in your lawn, armyworms may seem to march side-by-side like an army battalion. With dense populations, armyworms can destroy the size of a football field in as little as 3 days!
