True armyworms are an occasional pest in Wisconsin’s corn and wheat production systems. Typically, field damage is superficial and spotty in nature. During the summer of 2018, we had few, if any, reports of damage from the spring (migrating) generation. However, there were several significant, if not severe, damage from the summer generation throughout the state.
