    I have a account that appears to have a problem with Web Worms. White moths coming up during mowing last season. Is there a test I can easily prove this and any treatment that may be available. Note I am not licensed for pesticides. :rolleyes:

    Wrong frum for this, but you can do a simple soap test to determine if there are webworms. Probably a little early for this in your area, but there are members in your area who can chime in. Just get a coffee can and cut out the bottom. Place on the soil and fill with a 50/50 solution of dish detergent and water. Let is sit. You should see worms rise to the surface.

    Pull the grass apart and look for silk lined tunnels and green frass pellets. Sod webbies are not too tough to control and a healthy lawn usually outgrows the damage.

    They are noc-turnal(sp?) feeders, so it is easier to find them at night. You can look for the green pellets/frass Dylox/treatment
