Army Worms

Updated: Aug 15, 2020

Army worm

Cutworms and armyworms are active from mid-March to October. They feed on leaves and crowns and may cut off plants near the soil surface. Larvae feed at night and hide in the thatch layer or in a burrow in the soil during the day. Turfgrass may be closely clipped around aeration holes, which larvae commonly occupy. Damage appears as circular spots of seed grass or depressed spots. Armyworms, especially, prefer damp areas.
