What are Sod Webworms?
If you are new to Florida or you have been lucky enough to avoid a sod webworm infestation, then you may not be familiar with this troublesome pest. Sod webworms are destructive lawn caterpillars that attack warm season turf grasses. These caterpillars are usually grayish-green in color, and they can grow up to 1 inch long. They are nocturnal, eating at night and sleeping during the day. In their mature adult stage, these caterpillars develop into tan moths that lay their eggs on grass blades.
Signs of a Sod Webworm Infestation
How do you know if you have a sod webworm infestation in your Florida lawn? The warning signs of an infestation include:
- Discolored patches of sod. Initially, an infestation may cause an area of sod to be shorter and lighter in color than the surrounding unaffected sod. If a sod webworm infestation is allowed to go untreated, the pests can actually kill the grass, leaving you with brown, dead patches of sod.
- Tan moths in your grass. When you walk through your lawn, do you notice tan moths flying up out of the sod? As mentioned, sod webworms mature into tan moths. If you notice them flying up out of the grass when it is disturbed, then you could have an advanced infestation on your hands.
- Ragged-looking grass. Sod webworms feed on grass and leaves, leaving what is left behind looking ragged and unhealthy. If you have noticed that your grass looks thinner than it used to, or if you have noticed an increased amount of weeds in your yard, you may have an infestation.
If you have noticed any of these warning signs, it is important to have professional sod webworm treatment completed as soon as possible to prevent the infestation from affecting other areas of your yard.
