Getting rid of Sod Webworms Moths
What are the white moths that fly up from my grass and how do I get rid of them?
Sod Webworms are one of the most widely recognized groups of turf grass pest insects. The
adult form is commonly observed darting across the lawn when their environment is disturbed.
The adults don’t cause the damage, the larvae do! Call us today for control!
To help control the egg and larvae form of sod web worm
moths, we offer an insecticide application in summer. This treatment is applied based on the time
the moths lay their eggs. Please call L.C.S. today to schedule.
Keeping your lawn well watered and fertilizer will minimize the damage.
Watering, adequate water in the summer months will help to reduce damage areas and
help aide in recovery.
Mowing, be sure to mow lawn at the appropriate height. Mowing higher in summer
months will help the lawn to retain moisture and reduce damage.
Spray lawn with liquid insecticide using a hose end sprayer. This will not get rid of the
moths because they are airborne. You want to control the eggs the moths lay and the
larvae that feed on the grass
