Hi guys!
Over the past 3 days I have lost 3/4 of my lawn, it's browning off and looking awful. To check for lawn grub/curl grub, I did the soapy water trick, and all that rose up in that section were many MANY thin greeny-brown caterpillars. Are they causing this damage or is it something else? There's literally no sign of anything else around in the lawn. Cheers!

Answer: Hi Tahlia
Thank you for the question.
It sounds like you are having a problem with army worm. These are small caterpillars which will eat your lawn away. You can treat it by applying Yates Complete Lawn Insect control. Then help you lawn grow back by giving it a feed with Dynamic Lifter for Lawns.
