If you suspect you may have sod webworms but aren't sure, you can test suspicious areas by soaking them in a soapy water solution. 

Use about 2 tablespoons of dish detergent in 2 gallons of water. Apply to about a square foot of your turf. Let it soak in for a few minutes, and watch for worms to become visible at the top of the grass. If you see more than 10-15, it is a good idea to begin treating your lawn.

And it's that easy with the expert help from Do My Own Pest Control dot com!
