How long after spraying will the army worms in my lawn start dying? It rained immediately after I applied too.

Sprayed the lawn last night with confidor for army worm. It rained nearly immediately afterwards. I know rain increases its effectiveness but would this be too soon? The army worms are still active again tonight (although some seem dead).
Should I reapply at another time or should the confidor have more effect over a few days once it is in the lawn?

Answer: Hi Stuart, Confidor may agitate the army worm but won’t control them, was it the Complete lawn insecticide that you used, in this case it will take a week or so to see its effects. The rain would have helped the product activate through the soil.
