Beet armyworm (Spodoptera exigua) is one of the most destructive polyphagous pest species of worldwide economic importance. Beet armyworms occur in warmer regions of the Mediterranean countries, North America and Africa and invade the cooler Northern regions as temperatures permit. Young beet armyworm larvae feed on the under-surface of leaves. Fully-grown larvae devour foliage completely, leaving only major veins.
