What Lawn Insecticide on Sir Walter Buffalo for 'cutworm' can i use? What can we use that will get rid of the little turds but be safe for the lawn? It is well rooted and damage only appears to be to the leaves, the roots are still strong.

Answer: Hi Bianca,
It is likely that the damage that has been done to your lawn has been caused by the armyworm. This grub is active in autumn and can decimate a lawn in a short period of time if not controlled. Armyworm chew the blade of the grass unlike the curl grub which chews on the roots of the grass.
