Question of the Week: Cutworm

Last week the question was:  What is this?


This is a cutworm.  Cutworms are caterpillars that are usually found at or just below the soil surface.  They can damage seedlings by cutting through the stem near the soil line and occasionally chew holes in leaves.  When disturbed they will curl up into a “C” shape.  For more info, take a look at this page.


Here is this week’s question:  What is this flax seed-looking thing on the side of this wheat stem?
