The eggs take from one to three weeks to hatch and then the caterpillars begin feeding. Armyworms can be distinguished from other caterpillars by the following set of features: • • • they have three white stripes behind the head and on the tail they have three light stripes running the length of their bodies there are no obvious hairs. They can occur in large numbers in cereals and pasture grasses and when they have locally depleted supplies of food, they march into adjacent areas (hence the name).
They eat cereals as well, and can be pests if they are present in enough numbers, but the canola and clover-type plants are more vulnerable than the grasses because of the cotyledon stage. If the emerging canola or clover plant is seriously damaged in the cotyledon stage then it will not recover and the plant will die. On the other hand, cereals can stand more harm to the plant and can even grow out of some damage. We believe that rotations that consist of two tolerant crops (such as cereals) followed by a susceptible crop (such as canola) allow slug populations to increase in the cereals and cause serious damage in the canola.
