  1. General Information

    Female Sod Webworm moths drop their non-adhesive eggs onto turf while flying at night. The eggs fall into the thatch and hatch within 10 days, depending on the temperature. Peak hatching is early summer and continues throughout the summer months. Sod Webworms feed on tender leaves and stems, causing physical injury and openong areas of plant tissue for infection. Damage first appears as small brown patches, often mistaken for fungal disease.
