How can you tell if you have Armyworm?
Lawns will begin to yellow, look dry and brittle, often in sections, and damage often progresses rapidly. The grub has the appearance of a caterpillar, and normally hides in the thatch layer or top soil of the lawn during the day and feeds on the lush green blades during evening hours. As such, they are rarely observed during the daylight, being well camouflaged.
To confirm the presence of Armyworm within a lawn during daylight hours, there is a simple technique in drawing them to the surface for physical identification.Simply drench an area suspected of harbouring the grub with a bucket of warm soapy water (30mL of liquid dishwashing detergent in about 10 litres of water). If present, the Armyworm will crawl to the surface within one to 10 minutes, and the number of grubs appearing should be proportional to the damaged observed to lawn areas.
