TURF PESTS: ARMY WORMS CUT WORMS
Cutworms are moth caterpillars such as Agrotis sp.
These caterpillars chew off young plants just above the ground and can be highly destructive. Golf courses and sport fields are especially attractive places for females to lay eggs, and for the caterpillars to feed. They can damage turf grass by eating above ground plant tissue at night.
Dry spots on the lawn: an indication that the worms are active.
