Army Worms Marching On NE Texas Pastures & Lawns

Texas A&M Agrilife

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.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
