BrightView will be in Weybridge on Thursday, September 9 to apply an insecticide on our lawns to kill any armyworms present and hopefully prevent any additional armyworm damage.
The insecticide is called “Wisdom” (active ingredient: Bifenthrin) and it will be applied to all lawns, whether they are currently affected by armyworms or not. Please keep pets off lawns in Weybridge for 24 hours after the application on Thursday.
You can learn more about armyworms from these recent articles:
