Lawn winterization in December?

Hello. I was wondering if lawn winterization in December is too late or if it would have a negative impact on my grass given I should have done this in fall?

Didn't attempt flight until I left area. See Attached image.. Need to know if it's poisonous and any other facts you can share.

Just bought a home an the rear of the property has several trees. Some dead others have green stuff (I assume moss)growing on them. I would like to save and nourish the existing trees an they act as a buffer between houses.

Pest control in my vegetable garden

I have some lovage (still in the pot). I will be planting in my garden... I noticed that something had been chewing on it and today I found the culprit (see pic attached).

I don't like to use pesticides but I don't want my hard work to be wasted either. I have recently planted some kale from seed and I wonder if these worms/caterpillars would feed on that as well.

Please advise on how to get rid of this pest. I would like to be informed on all options including using pesticide. I know that I can probably pick these off and kill them... not sure if I can get over the ick factor. Please advise. Thanks
