Albany, NY (WIBX) – Farmers are being urged to keep an eye out for a second wave of armyworms that may attack their crops.
According to State Agricultural Commissioner Darrel Aubertine, armyworms have been spotted in western and northern New York.

In the past, second wave infestations did not cause much damage. But, with increased numbers and drought conditions, officials can not dictate what will happen.

Armyworms are most visible in the morning, since they feed at night. Normally, they will attack corn and hay crops, but may also feed on grains, fruits, and vegetables.

Because of the conditions, the Department of Agriculture says control measures should be applied carefully to avoid damaging crops.
