The 1 ½ inch long mature Fall Army Worm larva with distinct strips along its sides does all the damage to your turf and foliage. They feed on grasses any time of the day but are most active in the early morning. Fall Army Worms are known for their habit of moving and feeding in mass from one turf grass area to another. They commonly eat everything green, leaving only a few stems. This moving front of larvae may consume many square feet of turf which seems to disappear overnight. It seems as if the ground is moving with so many caterpillars in the grass.
