    Run!!!!!

    We had them damn things so bad one year we were using scoop shovels to get them off from the house. Literally hauled truck loads of them away. Took every leaf off of everything. Looked like the place was sprayed with agent orange. Really stressed the trees and lost a lot. The roads were like grease from the smashed worms. Stinking SOB's!!!!

    I swear I will light the place on fire if they ever come back like that.

    Good luck

    It truly was of biblical proportions.

    I had them bad last year. Was tilling this week before the rain and noticed the dad gum moths flying out of grass. Not as bad as last year but they are there.

    Bifenthrin from TSC took care of them very well. I'll add that to post emergence spray if I my place will stay dry enough to get milo or corn in. Loossing time on both.
