Abstract

The armyworm and several species of cutworms are always present in the gardens and fields of Iowa. Cutworms cause great annoyance here and there in the spring by cutting off transplanted and other young plants in vegetable and flower gardens. Young corn plants also are particularly susceptible to their attack. The armyworm Is most frequently found In low-lying grassland and generally feeds singly, as do cutworms. The Injury by armyworms and cutworms In fields or pastures of timothy, bluegrass and of certain cereal crops, Is not so noticeable and is usually entirely overlooked by the grower.
