This year the sixth graders at Snook I.S.D. studied and worked with corn earworms. The scientific name for the corn earworm is Helicoverpa zea or Heliothis zea. The corn earworm is also known as the tomato fruitworm, the sorghum headworm, vetchworm, and cotton bollworm. You can see corn earworms in four stages egg, larva, pupa, and moths.
These four stages take many days and even weeks to go through. All you need is a bit of patience to raise some corn earworms.
The sixth graders at Snook didn’t find out much about the corn earworm egg but some of my peers did take some pictures of the corn earworm egg.
