Weed and feed after sod webworm damage?
Sod webworms torched my yard this year. I treated with liquid spray Triazicide multiple times with zero luck. Today I finally went by site one and picked up granular talstar. I’m hoping this knocks them out. The spots that were hit hard by the webworms now have a bunch of weeds growing back in. 1. What’s the best weed and feed I should use to treat badly damaged st. Aug grass? I’m letting the grass grow and cutting at the highest setting to help it grow. 2. Will rye grass in the winter promote a healthy st. Aug in the summer? A guy down the street recommended this to me.

it will likely deter/slow growth of st aug in the spring. I have never seen winter over seeding recommended for st aug

Never weed and feed. Never over seed rye on a stressed lawn. If the weeds are crowding out your lawn then spot treat with msm (a gentler herbicide). Fert with a 20-20-10 or similar fert mix to promote recovery.

Why pray tell would I not use weed and feed? I have the same problem, and three quarters of a bag of southern weed and feed sitting in the garage...

Do you know what the weed portion is? Do you know what the feed portion is? Can the weed part be used this time of year? Is the feed part the correct nitrogen rate for September? I used to work for Scott’s Miracle Gro. Do not use their weed and feed products.

I love SMG. It is a great company but their ready to go weed and feeds aren’t great.

Ok. Makes sense. Should it be avoided year round?

Any update? I also used Triazicide (granular) and it hasn't slowed down the spread at all. I'm needing to apply something else.

Use Sevin SL. Sprayed it last night, had dead worms all over the yard this morning. I use it every year.
