As previously noted on PDD, this is not the summer of the full-on army worm invasion. However, I did see a lot of the above on the end of Minnesota Point on Saturday. So there will be some level of yuck this year.
I sometimes wonder if people who have moved to Minnesota from outside the Midwest maybe eight years ago hear army worm stories and think it’s a figment of folklore, like the hoop snake. They will be in for a surprise.
