Reports of fall armyworms are coming in!

(By Jared Hoyle; KSU Turfgrass Research and Extension)

I have just received my first report of Fall Armyworms this year.  Last year we experienced a couple areas that had some damage but wasn’t very wide spread.  So to keep us prepared the link below goes to information about armyworm control that I put together last year.

Keep a look out for fall armyworms.  A couple of reports have been around the Derby, KS area and have already caused some damage to tall fescue turf. These armyworms were already 1 to 1.5″ long.

Keep an eye out!
