The term "cut worm" is used lo in- dicate any one of a number of smootb caterpillars of similar habits, but all are the larvae of one or other of the Owlet moths. Cut worms are of a neutral sreen, Kfey or hrown col- or. They feed at night and remain hidden by day, under nibhlsh or in the soil. The adults are medium sized moths of a neutral color which oltcn liy to lights at night. worms are especially injurious to corn, clover, alfalfa, onions and var- ious garden crops. Several species of cut wofins have the habit of crawl- ing up the trunks of trees anil eiitinir out the hnds in spring: these species .being commonly known as climbing cut worms. When food becomes scurce cut. worms may adopt the habit of army worms and may mi- gnue. devouring every green thing in thtir course of travel. In the West this year many thousands of acres of wheat, and other grains have been destroyed, wholesale, by them. A common siglit to iho traveller hv trail or highway has been the swath ol' daily increasing width, cut hare or living Ri-een from HIP fence in- waste of labor and oflprclil due to tiie neglected cut, worms. To right iho pest requires a know- ledge life -history and habits. Tbe adult moth lays her eggs in midsummer, upon gri-en vegetation, which serves as a food supply to Ihe i.uickly batching larvae.
