Should it be eliminated?
The corn earworm moth is food for bats and other animals. If the moth is completely eliminated, it could seriously affect the animals that rely on it for food. Before eliminating the moth, research should be done on the animals that feed on the moth.
The corn earworms are cannibals. The larvae eat each other.
We need to retest and change the food every day to prevent rotting or retest using live plants.
Will corn earworm moths drink Sweet-n-low and water, Equal and water, and sugar water?
(12 moths tested)
