The term sod webworm refers to a group of closely related insect species whose larvae attack bluegrass and other turfgrasses. Each species has a different life cycle, and sod webworms consume many types of grasses and even broadleaved plants. Many sod webworms are in the genus Crambus, and adults of this group are called lawn moths (2 pages; Revised in 1997).
