Product Overview

Summit Biological Caterpillar and Webworm Control RTS is an all-natural herbicide that controls webworms and caterpillars. Contains an active ingredient which effectively targets and kills these pests but does not harm beneficial insects, birds, or earthworms. It is an excellent alternative to chemical insecticides because it provides the same effect using organic ingredients. It is safe to apply on fruits, vegetables, and other edible plants since it is OMRI listed and it is approved for organic gardening. Kills caterpillars and webworms when they ingest treated foliage by inhibiting feeding until pests die of starvation. It controls leaf-feeding caterpillars like cabbage loppers, bagworms, gypsy moths, fall webworms, and tent caterpillars. Best applied when caterpillars and worms are first noticed.  Reapply after heavy rain. Repeat application at five to seven-day intervals as needed.

Q
Can I use Summit Biological Caterpillar and Webworm Control to treat Sod web worm problems in tall fescue lawn ? Or if you can recommend some?

Summit Biological Caterpillar and Webworm Control is not labeled for turf application. Dylox would be great for a quick kill.
