This worm/catipillar seems to be eating up my lawn. What is this critter and how can I get rid of them.

    The barely distinguishable thing in the middle looks like an armyworm

    They are prevalent on all types of turf, all over Georgia this year! Treat with Sevin or any insecticide labeled caterpillar or armyworm.

    We treated the lawn with a granular Bug-be-Gone and liquid “triazine” spelling?. It seems to have killed all of the worms in the area treated. Thanks for all the help.
