A grass that grows every where that...which webworms prefer over sa is crabgrass as it is sweeter to them and more tender if i recall. That is why they generally will eat it first. But what the heck do i know i am just a lawn boy and not a turf expert with the knowledge like you.

To the original post, I was in onancock, va at my inlaws house last weekend and we found about 1/2 dozen in his st. Augustine yard. Something that I wouldn't believe unless I saw it with my own eyes was that he has a gorgeous st. Augustine yard. For those that don't know, onancock is 25 miles south of Maryland and on the eastern shore so their climate is not like the rest of va. I didnt think they could live that far up north.

Still trying to wrap my pea brain around the use of a non-selective weed killer in an IPM program and in an area where webworms would be.

Round up's AI, IS part of an IPM program. It's only used when necessary, last straw. Listen I only speak of my area CF. anywhere else out of my playground. In MY area webworms live at ground levels. Not in trees or rather, above ground.

So you spray the grass with Round Up and starve the webworms as a part of your IPM porgram?

That doesn't even make sense. I guess you never understood the original question.

Just because you haven't caught on yet to what webworms prefer over turf grass varieties doesn't mean it's nonexistent. It's been happening for years. 14 at my residence.
