Armyworm activity is best seen in the early morning or late evening.  Indications of armyworm activity in your lawn are areas that are turning brown, and/or signs of drought that get larger by the day.  It does not take long for them to work across your entire lawn, and leave you with a dead looking, brown lawn, void of grass.
