Sevin works really well also. A liqiud app. in the evening is going be the most effective. since the worm doed most of its feeding at night.

Here is a link. They are also up here in Rhode Island in quite a few areas. Some of my lawns are 50-75% brown.

read in the paper today that these worms are all over the NE USA and into the eastern maritimes in Canada. Hasn't been this bad in a long time. dont feel bad about your or your customers grass, though. Farmers are losing a ton in lost crops due army worms.
