If you are seeing small white or dingy brown moths fling out of your lawn, or your lawn has developed grayish brown damaged areas 2 or 3 foot in diameter. It is a good chance you may have Sod Web Worms. Often, damage is first noticed along hedges or flower beds.
This is the most common caterpillar to attacking turfgrasses. These moths attack all grasses but prefer Bermuda and least desire bahia. During the day, the moths rest in shrubbery next to turf areas and at dusk, fly over the turf depositing eggs. When these eggs hatch into larva, they do their damage on the turf, rasping the surface or skeletonize the blades. As the larva mature, injured grass has notches are chewed along the sides of the blades or is eaten back evenly. Damaged areas of your lawn become larger and fuse together. Sod Web Worms are usually not a problem until June here in Beautiful Southwest Florida.
