Sod webworm and sevin granules


I put some granules down last week and wet the lawn as well ( per directions)

prior to this, i had many moths when mowing and walking the lawn, its been 5 days, should i expect all the moths to be gone? there is now only the occasional ( I'd say less than 5% of what there was previous)

Should i wait a little longer to ensure they are all gone or go get another bag of granules ( or do the liquid with hose adapter applicator) ?

I've also got the bare and dead spots raked up and seeded, would another application be bad for the seed as it has not germinated yet? I'm ok with overseeding again as well. ( I plan to core aerate and possibly dethatch this fall as well )

Location is NE wisconsin ( Green Bay)

lawn is in great shape ( except for the patches from the sod webworms munched on)

The insectiside will not hurt the seed. Do not race the reaction though and over apply. Excess just makes its way into the environment in run off and kills bugs we need. Give the Sevin granules time to do their thing.

How did you get a moth problem? You were not watering later in the day than the turf could dry were you? Is mulch or thatch building up so they have places to lay eggs? Mowing too high? Not saying it is your fault by the way.

thanks for the advice to wait a bit. I was going to dethatch last year and never got the time. i'll be renting a power rake one of these weekends.

Thatch is often a sign of too shallow too frequent watering. Water stays high in the soil, the roots grow up there instead of down. Water less often, but slower so it soaks in. More water less often. Too much nitrogen fertilizer is another cause. Crass clippings are not usually a cause.
Just saying, not that I am accusing you of any of that, heck I don't even know you. I'm sure you're a fine human being and I'm sorry I brought it up.
