The name “cutworm” is applied to a large number of larvae of lepidopterous species in the family Noctuidae. The moths are night flyers and the larvae are night feeders. Both stages hide during the day. Many of the cutworm species are rather general feeders on many herbaceous plants but some climb woody plants including grape vines and feed on buds and young leaves. This group is referred to as the climbing cutworms.
