”Annual migrations of some kinds of North American butterflies and
dragonflies (as well as birds!) are well known and often highly
popularized. However, perhaps one of the most interesting migration stories
in North America involves the army cutworm with its low elevation/high
elevation migration cycle that occurs entirely within the borders of the
United States and is most clearly evident in eastern Colorado. The focus of
this evening’s discussion will be this rather notorious “miller moth” and
explore the life history and habits of this insect and the various impacts
it has on ecology and human interests.

Whitney Cranshaw is presently an emeritus professor of entomology at
Colorado State University, following retirement in July 2020. During his 37
years at Colorado State he primarily worked on issues related to the better
understanding and management of insects that affected horticultural plants
in the state.”
