    I'm guessing army worms too. They move in "in masses" very quickly. More apt to invade farm fields (like oats, wheat, etc), but can be a prob in new housing developments too.

    Confront works extremely well for any cat activity, from army to tent to winter moth, they will die in matter of a blink of an eye.

    We had an infestation of army worms here, and surrounding areas, about 5 years ago. There was billions and billions. almost every lawn, golf course, and ball field had them, and if they didn't it was a matter of time and they moved in! It was absolutely insane. Perfectly green lawns were stripped to the crowns leaving a brown path. In that time Dursban was the product that worked the best of anything. I know I used a couple things, Tempo and something else that were "labled" for them but it didn't even slow them down. Everyone with a spray rig and access to the chemicals was busy 12 hours a day for several weeks. Many people made a LOT of money off of that plague! Every year about this time I watch a little more closely, Just never know if that will ever happen again...
