Life Cycle : Sandhill Cutworm winter is spent in the larval stage. After emerging from the pupa (cocoon), mated female moths deposit eggs that hatch into larvae (caterpillars) which develop through several larval stages (instars) before pupating in the soil. There may be three to five generations per year in.


Damage : Sandhill Young cutworms feed on leaf tissue, cutting small holes ). When black cutworms are about half grown , they become big enough to cut stalks or severely injure the plant by feeding at the base.


Management: Sandhill cutworms feed almost entirely beneath the surface of the soil, so they usually cut the seedlings off below the growing point. The end result is dead plants and a reduced stand. Because sandhill cutworms overwinter as larvae in sandy soils, many producers who have had a history with these cutworms choose to apply a preventive treatment..
