Sarah Latham, Rains County Agrilife Extension Agent, says army worms (caterpillars that will grow into moths) are causing considerable damage on Northeast Texas pastures and lawns.  She says if you see three or more army worms per square foot, you should start treatment of the lawn or pasture immediately.  Aphids are also causing problems for many plants.
