What are the moths in my yard?

External Links:

If you are seeing moths in your yard, it’s most likely the adult stage of the sod webworm. The larva stage of the moth does all of the damage to your lawn, eating the grass down to the roots. The result is a brown area of your lawn that is much shorter than the rest of the grass, almost as if a weed eater has cut it down. These worms are treatable but, to get rid of them completely two treatments are necessary in order to kill the eggs as they hatch.
