Be aware that fall armyworms are starting to appear throughout the Carolinas. This is the time of year that these and other worms are most active and at peak numbers. The problem with this pest has likely been made even worse by the hot and dry weather that is limiting the wild vegetation that would typically serve as hosts for fall armyworms. The infestations normally start at the edge of the turf and move inward. Be alert for this pest and take the time to check for it each week. This pest can stay with us through October.
Please refer to our resources page for information on monitoring, identification and control.
