Fields decimated by ravenous insects might bring to mind images of biblical plagues of locusts, but across eastern Nebraska, another pest is leaving a similar trail of destruction; the fall armyworm.
Fall armyworms, (Spodoptera frugiperda) are a species from the southern U.S. that does not overwinter in Nebraska.
