Fall Armyworms live up to name

Posted by romeethredge on September 26, 2014

Well, fall is here and the Fall Armyworm is living up to his name. I’ve had calls this week about them in hayfields again, in big numbers.  Also, I looked at a young field of rye planted for grazing that has them there in abundance eatin’ up the young stand of grazing.

This first photo is of an egg mass that a moth laid on the rye that will soon hatch out to a couple of dozen new armyworms.

Here you can see the young field of  grazing that is looking bad, the grower will spray soon or he’ll have to replant.
