Cutworms egg is off-white in color and nearly spherical in shape. Larvae feed during the night and hide during the day in the soil or debris. When fully grown the larvae pupate in an earthen cell 5 to 10 cm below the soil surface.


Life Cycle :Cutworms have one generation per year. They overwinter as eggs or young larvae depending on the species. Eggs hatch in April or early May, and young larvae (or caterpillars) feed at night on weeds and volunteer plants before the pulse crop emerges. Larvae molt six times and grow larger with each instar. Cutworms are most noticeable in crops from late May through late June. After cutworms complete their development in late June, they burrow deeper into the soil and make a small pupal chamber.


Damage : cutworm feeding may include holes chewed in leaves. Leaf margins may appear ragged. For most cutworms this above ground injury occurs early in the cutworm’s developmental stages. At this time, young worms feed above ground at night or on cloudy days. Older, larger worms often cut plants above, at, or below ground level. Larger cutworms tend to remain below the soil surface, especially if the weather is dry and the soil surface has crusted.
