The recent rainfall and cooler than normal temperatures across the South have lead to an early army worm infestation.  The pests, that are actually caterpillars and not worms, usually show up later in the fall and can cause major damage to your lawn overnight.

The pest were given the name “army worms” because they line up like solders heading onto a battleground.

According to an entomologist with the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, the early start of the fall army worms is one of the worst they’ve ever seen.

As the pest invade your lawn, they will eat the blades of grass.  You yard will begin to turn brown and look dead.  The worst part is, these pests are fast.  Some reports claim the army worms destroyed entire lawns in a matter of days.
