I want to issue a very strong alert and warning for fall armyworms.  They are showing up everywhere, and are a large threat to newly established turf and can also severely damage established stands.  I expect serious problems in turf over the next 3 months.  This is the time of year that fall armyworm outbreaks can occur. They are causing a lot of problems already in North Carolina.  View related links to learn more about fall armyworms.
