Recently declared an endemic pest, Fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) attacks over 350 commercial crops world wide. It is particularly attracted to crops like maize, sweet corn, sorghum and other vegetable crops. It has also been seen feeding on Bt cotton due to building resistance in South America.
