The cotton bollworm, corn earworm, or Old World bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera) is a moth, the larvae of which feed on a wide range of plants, including many important cultivated crops. It is a major pest in cotton and one of the most polyphagous and cosmopolitan pest species.

Life cycle

The adults are being active at night. The females mate several times and lay 300-3000 eggs during their lifetime. The eggs are laid singly on stems, leaves, and fruit. The hatching larvae eat the grains and reach a length of 40 mm, then larvae go under to the soil and converting to the pupa stage (10 to 15 days) then the pupa becomes to adult and comeback in their favorable condition from soil. In summer the pest develops in 25-40 days, in the cold season within 6-7 months. In the Middle East the pest completes 4-5 annual generations, some of which overlap. This pest may migrate over long distances, borne by winds
