Fall Armyworm insect, damage up to 80 plants, most damage see in Maize and rice. Egg are laid on the underside of the leaves, freshly hatched larvae move downwards to leaf sheath and feed on inner tissue, With the advancement of growth and development larvae bore into stem bore into stem and feed on inner surface. Larvae cause damage by consuming foliage. Young larvae initially consume leaf tissue from one side, leaving the opposite epidermal layer intact. By the second or third instars, larvae begin to make holes in leaves and eat from the edge of the leaves inward. Feeding in the whorl of corn often produces a characteristic row of perforations in the leaves. Larval densities are usually reduced to one to two per plant when larvae feed in close proximity to one another, due to cannibalistic behavior.
Four life stages of FAW i.e Eggs(2-3days), Larva(15-22days), Pupa(7-10days), Adult(5-7days) respectively. The life cycle is completed in about 30 days during the summer but 60 days in the spring and autumn, and 80 to 90 days during the winter. The number of generation occurring in an area varies with the appearance of the dispersing adults. The ability to diapauses is not present in this species. In moths are abundant from April to December, but some are found even during the winter months.
