BE ON THE LOOKOUT!

Fall Armyworms and Bermudagrass Stem Maggot have been spotted at treatable levels in fertilized pastures and hayfields in Central & Southern Georgia!

(Editor’s note:  These pests generally move from south to north, so if they are finding them in Georgia, you can bet they are in North Florida as well.)
