Update from the field....
Many prairie growers have a cutworm or armyworm story of woe but this time around growers on Vancouver Island near Port Alberni contended with an unusual pest - True armyworm (Mythimna unipuncta) in high densities were eating up hay fields and pasture! Thanks to Tracy Hueppelsheuser with the BC Ministry of Agriculture who shared this CTV news clip.
