Adult moths emerge from the soil in late summer and fall. They deposit eggs in loose soil. Eggs usually hatch in late winter. Under some conditions, eggs hatch in the fall and the insect overwinters as a partially grown caterpillar.


Life Cycle When the worms are through feeding they go slightly deeper into the soilbuilding about them earthen cells in which they go into the resting stage or pupate. They usually lay their eggs in the stubble of recently cut grain fields and, wheD abundant, also in soft bare soil. The eggs remain in the soil during the winter and usually all are hatched by the first of May.
