Its scientific name derives from frugiperda
which is for lost fruit, named because of the species' ability to destroy crops The fall armyworm is active at a different
time of year from the true armyworm, another species in the order Lepidoptera and family Noctuidae, but of the genus
Mythimna. Outbreaks of the true armyworm usually occur during the early part of the summer; the fall armyworm does
most damage in the late summer in the southern part of the United States, and early fall in the northern regions.

Pest of crop plants
Because of their food preferences, fall armyworm larvae can wreak havoc on a wide range of crops. The first historical account of the fall armyworm's destruction was in 1797 in Georgia. Destruction can happen almost over night, because the first stages of a caterpillar's life require very little food, and the later stages require about 50 times more. Because of this rapid change in food consumption, the presence of larva will not be noticed until they have destroyed almost everything in as little as a night. Some examples of targeted crops include cotton, tobacco, sweet corn, rice, peanuts, and even fruits such as apples, oranges, and many more. The list of possible food sources for the worms is extensive, so crop damage is wide-ranging. It is estimated that almost 40 percent of those species that armyworms target are economically important. Because the larva eat so much of the plant, they are very detrimental to crop survival and yield. In corn, larvae will even burrow into the corn ear to eat the kernels

Specimens were obtained either as larvae collected directly from corn host plants or as adult males from pheromone traps located in or near cornfields. In the larval collections from 2014–2015 in the Caribbean region, efforts were made to reduce the possibility of collecting multiple specimens from the same egg mass. This involved selecting only a single larva from an infested plant and none from adjacent plants. This method was not used in the earlier 2013 larval collections from Trinidad & Tobago, which were from two locations within the town of Mount Hope and designated TT-A and TT-B. However, polymorphisms in the CO1 region indicated that TT-A and TT-B were derived from at least nine and three different maternal lineages, respectively. All larval specimens were killed by freezing and stored either air-dried or in ethanol at room temperature.
