Armyworms in Kentucky

Armyworms that typically inhabit the southern United States are often found each year in Kentucky. Reports indicate a higher number of armyworms are here and in the south this year.  These worms can destroy lawns and crops quickly, sometimes in as little as 24 to 48 hours.  The worms are usually active in mid-summer and fall until the first frost.  Consult online resources and watch for more information in the October issue of The Anchor Age newsletter.
