About The Armyworm

The Armyworm is susceptible to cold and are unable to survive in Ohio after frost.  Entomologists from Ohio State University determine the pest is travel in fronts and weather from southern states.  Turf managers suggest success with the application of treatments such as pyrethroid or insecticides. As a result, here is a link to Ortho on Amazon where you can purchase these products.  Have no fear, the lawn will recover over time with extra watering if you decide not to treat.  There is so much to tell about these pest so be sure to check out Extension Office information for your state.
