Where Floratam or other fast growing variety can recover quickly, some of the slower growing, dwarf varieties of St Augustine do have trouble recovering from worm damage. Webworms and armyworms both. If they mow it down, the runners don't care to be exposed to that amount of direct sunlight. You end up with a few days without rain, and bam, you have a mess. My front yard has had numerous outbreaks over the past two years. Sometimes it's not that bad, other times the damage is significant.
