Answer: It's probably not cutworms. These are caterpillar-like larvae that feed at night. You can often see them by digging around a fallen plant early the next morning as they are still around gloating over their kill! It's more likely some other problem is afflicting your lawn. Perhaps white grubs, chinch bugs or some other lawn pest. Dig up a one foot diameter patch of lawn and check and see what critters you find. Then we can talk more about the controls.
