Event Details

Learn all about Fall webworms from Entomology Professor Dr. Mariana Abarca. Fall webworms (Hyphantria cunea) are caterpillars native to North America that can feed on more than 400 species of plants. Their generalist nature has aided them to colonize other continents, becoming an agricultural pest in Europe and Asia. In this talk, we’ll discuss the natural history of fall webworms, their relationships with host plants and natural enemies, and the traits that have enabled them to expand their geographic range.
