Armyworms are common lawn insects in Texas that can cause extensive damage to your turf if left to their own devices. These pests are the larvae of certain species of moths and feed on your grass blades, leaving chewed, ragged edges and a transparent, windowpane-like appearance since they strip them of their green color. If you suspect an armyworm infestation, you will want to contact professionals immediately and schedule a curative treatment to eliminate these pests. Once they have been dealt with, you should invest in lawn care services like fertilization, weed control, and aeration to help your lawn recover from any damage caused by armyworms.

What are the signs of armyworm damage on your lawn?

Armyworms are destructive lawn pests that can wreak havoc on your turf. They are the larvae of certain species of moths and have voracious appetites, moving across your lawn in groups, or "armies," hence the name. As they do, they feed on your grass blades, and upon closer inspection, you may notice that they have chewed, ragged edges. They also strip them of their green color, giving them a transparent, windowpane-like look. As the infestation worsens, patches of thinning, brown grass may appear on your lawn.

Armyworm damage becomes most apparent on your lawn in the fall.

Contact Professionals Immediately if You Suspect an Armyworm Infestation on Your Lawn

If you suspect an armyworm infestation on your lawn, you'll want to take prompt action and contact a professional lawn care company as soon as possible. When you do, they will come out to inspect your lawn and confirm whether armyworms are indeed the culprit behind the damage. If they are, they will administer a curative treatment to stop the infestation in its tracks, preventing further damage to your grass.

Help your grass recover from armyworm damage with lawn care services.

While scheduling professional curative treatments is essential for eliminating armyworms, they won't reverse the damage your grass has already sustained. Because of this, you'll want to invest in lawn care services to help it recover, including fertilization, weed control, and aeration.

Fertilizers provide vital nutrients that bolster healthy growth and root development, revitalize its green color, and rebuild its strength to help it return to tip-top condition and stay resilient to armyworms in the future. Meanwhile, weed control treatments ensure unwanted weeds don't steal those nutrients and other resources your turf needs to recover after an infestation. Lastly, aeration helps loosen compacted soil and increases airflow, water absorption, and nutrient penetration to the roots of your grass. This improves resource access, meaning it can intake more of everything it needs to bounce back quicker from armyworm damage. With these services, you can nurse your lawn back to health after an armyworm infestation and help it return to its former glory in no time.
