    I don't have the equipment to spray lawns so I'm wondering if anybody knows of granular products that may work on army worms? I know that liquid apps are recommended but I figured I'd check. Also, anybody know what to do to get a lawn healthy after their feeding frenzy. Thanks.
     
  2. Granular Dursban lists 3 types of armyworms on the label.

    Look on the label under surface insects for rate of application needed.

    Can't find a label of dursban go here:

    I applied Dursban last month so I don't have any insect issues.

    Lesco has dursban on fertilizer. It's easier to spread vs. the straight product.

    Thanks Stone.
    I think I'll go for the combo because my theory is that if they eat the blades, some nitrogen will help push some top growth to hopefully get some new healthy grass blades to replace what they ate. Anybody else have other suggestions for getting the lawn back to normal?
