Abstract/Contents:"During prolonged periods of dry weather with little or no succulent growth appearing in the unwatered turf, webworms tend to concentrate on artificially watered areas of grass. When laying their eggs, the moths seem to seek places of luxurient growth, and the destructive worms that hatch out 7 to 10 days later are usually more abundant there. Thus well-kept lawns and golf greens offer ideal conditions for the egg-laying activities of these moths and suffer the most extensive injury. Suggestions for the control of webworms were included in an article appearing in T. T. T., June, 1940."
