    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.

    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.
