I've seen them around too-on Long Island and I haven't seen as many as this year before although not in enough numbers to do damage.

Hey Ant,

I just fed about a dozen of those things to my son's Leopard Gecho. Pretty tastey too.

The pic's a little fuzzy but I'd say webworm. A wire worm would be more burnt orange than that. Keep in mind that there are a LOT of different kinds of Sod Webworms out there. Perhaps your area enjoys (?) more than one type.

have you been getting hit with the warmer temps & all the rain like us? If so, a webworm might get confused & be near enough the surface to find.,
