    because i miss diagnosed a problem lawn i am spraying the lawn for sod web worms at n/c.

    it is my choice to do it at n/c and i feel its the right thing to do.

    all along i was blaming the dry weather we were having.

    well it all started along the curb strip thr first week in august.wilted turf,no sign of insects.

    went out there today and it seemed like and looked like grubs...the whole strip is dmanged .after poaking around i seen the silk and frask from the worm....

    i will post a pic. tuesday.

    i told the client that it will come back....i will seed it anyway.
