Cutworm on grass

apbj123February 20, 2013

Good Day,
I live up in a Wildlife Reserve in Limpopo - hoedspruit.
Have planted a section of lawn in August last year -which was doing well until now - grass going brown and looks like it is dying.
We found cutworm on lawn as it seemed to be dying and looked like something was eating it. We found greenish
worms under the grass in the soil - took them to Obara -
whom supply agricultural products - and they confirmed it is cutworm and gave me a spray to put on. It is posionist, have sprayed the grass but would like to know how long it would take to get rid of them and must I continue to water the grass in the meantime. They advised that I respray in 7 - 10 days time again.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

we can not answer your question ...

but what i really want to know.. is why your seller can not answer ...

OR!!! ... the label usually has a toll free phone number .. they should be happy to answer ...

good luck
