Mulye and Gordon (1993) also reported that lipid synthesis and catabolism of the fat body was severely impaired in juvenile hormone analogue treated budworms
The bacteria are now recommended for use against tobacco budworms
Oil-soluble dye in larval diet for tagging moths, eggs, and spermatophores of tobacco budworms
Timber harvest and an infestation of spruce budworms
resulted in a significant decline in mature evergreen trees (the primary cover in deer yards), which offer protection from deep snow and wind.

is an authority on the genetics controlling cotton plants' natural ability to resist attack by boll weevils, cotton bollworms, tobacco budworms
, tarnished plant bugs and microscopic worms known as nematodes.
If your geraniums, nicotiana, penstemons, and petunias appear healthy but have no flowers, budworms
may be eating the flower buds before they open.
A commonly recommended product for budworm
control is Bacillus thuringiensis, a bacterial preparation in powder or liquid form that kills budworms
by causing a lethal infection in their digestive tract.
Although fewer pesticides are being sprayed on Bt cotton to control pests like bollworms and budworms
, even more toxic pesticides than before are being sprayed to control pests like aphids and stink bugs that seem to thrive once their bollworm or budworm
Without these insect eaters, there would likely be more severe outbreaks of spruce budworms
, which could devastate both commercially and recreationally important forests throughout the northern Midwest.
