The larvae of the sod webworms feed on the shoot and crown of the grass, but not the roots. Irregular brown patches appear on the turf and the grass dies back, leaving irregularly sized dead areas. The 1/2” larvae are slender and gray with brown heads. They can be seen when the brown or dead sod is lifted.
Beneficial nematodes are effective when applied according to package directions.
