Army worms become an issue for lawns in Newnan, Sharpsburg, Senoia, Peachtree City and Fayetteville around August and September. They move fast and can be very distructive. Army worms are easy to recognize. Chances are, if you have an infestation, your lawn will be covered with them. Army worms are an inch to 1 1/2 inches long and actively eat surface growth as well as root growth in warm season turfs in Coweta and Fayette County Georgia. Thousands can be found at one time in a lawn and they move fast. I have seen army worms in Newnan consume 15000 square feet of lawn in one day! The good news is that they are easily treetable. The key is to move fast, and prevent as much damage as possible. Call us today if you think you have army worms and let one of our turf experts evaluate your lawn.
