The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture has received numerous reports of fall armyworms in Tennessee.

Despite their growing presence in the state as they migrate north, concerns should remain low about their impact on local lawns and row crop farms.

The most effective way to treat armyworms is to apply treatment options that are sold at lawn and garden stores only when the armyworms show up.

Homeowners are encouraged to walk their lawn daily, and look for indications of armyworms, such as dead patches where they have eaten and large numbers of birds that might have gathered to feed on the worms.

For more information on armyworms and treatment options, please contact your local county Extension office.
