Please check your lawn for Armyworms. The mild winter, hot summer, and dry fall have made the conditions just right for outbreaks of armyworms in the North Alabama area.
Armyworms have been discovered on lawns in Potter’s Mill.
You can contact your lawn care specialists or purchase an over the counter insecticide that comes in either a granule or liquid form. Just make sure you read the label and it’s labeled for armyworms. The Armyworms pose no threat to humans or animals but will deplete the grass in your lawn. See the attached images for photos of Armyworms and the lawn damage they can cause.
