After wet weather, armyworms cause headaches for some Valley homeowners
After wet weather during the first few weeks of October, fall armyworms have invaded some parts of the Rio Grande Valley.
The worms feed on grass and other foliage, moving across lawns side-by-side.
"They move in a pack all the way across from one end of a property to another, kind of like an army marching through battle," said Jimmy Wilson of Harlingen-based Lawn Pros.
A variety of options exist for handling an armyworm infestation.
