A quick snapshot of ‘What kills what’
Lawn Armyworms have hatched in plague proportions with the arrival of the recent heavy rain and are affecting new and old lawns alike. Some eggs have come with new turf, other infestations have come from moths flying in from surrounding grass areas, settling into lawns that are lush and high in nitrogen. Unfortunately, the egg stage has no effective control methods and is extremely difficult to find the eggs laid deep in the grass. A couple of weeks after egg laying, thousands of small caterpillars hatch out, hide in the base of the lawn, come up at night and eat the leaves off the grass.
As they grow bigger, they eat more each night until the new leaves are unable to keep up with the feeding frenzy. The worst damaged areas are usually in shaded areas where they can feed for longer in the shade before the sun sends them back down again. The lawn looks dead, but recovers quickly once sprayed with a suitable insecticide. There are a number of suitable insecticides that are registered to kill armyworms. Always follow the recommended rates on the label of the chemical you are using and be sure to protect yourself with appropriate protective gear (i.e. gloves, mask, safety glasses).
Chemicals that will control Armyworm are Bifenthrin, Fortune 500 (chlorpyrifos), Carbaryl, Pyrethrum and Dipel. Come in and see us to get the right advice for the control of this nasty little pest.
