    Army Worms

    Spodoptera species - fall armyworms, w'ever

    how many 'life cycles' might these go thru? I treated some of my yard a few weeks ago with a spinosad product, but I'm concerned because my neighborhood is FILLED with the moths - looks like a snow flurry driving out of my area in the dark mornings and I walk around my property and scare up 2-3 moths every other step or so.

    I found one reference that said they can have 3 up to 6 cycles before the first freeze! (I'm sure it depends on geography and climate)

    it does explain why I saw wasps in the lawn a few weeks ago, dunno what else preys on them but I think paper wasps were.

    I'm gonna try to spray again today, our average first freeze isn't til 22 of Nov.
