    OMG--down on my knees looking close--and found worms on grass. Possibly army worms. Rained for a few hours--warm very humid conditions. I will try to post picture. Michigan.

    There probably are not enough to cause a problem. But I found 6 in about 3 minutes. They will get bigger. Are these army worms?

    Look that the head capsule is honeycombed w/ dark lines. Body looks like Armyworm. Scout daytime with 2oz. lemon joy per gallon H2O for a Flush.
    OR scout after dark with the flashlight.

    Don't wait with this pest......They can do major destruction FAST.

    When we had them here, Talstar was the drug of choice.

    Good Luck!!!
