They migrate into tobacco fields and often feed in groups on the upper leaves of scattered plants. Feeding holes are of moderate size and irregular or ragged, giving leaves a lacy appearance. Larvae are the grubs which feed in the soil on roots other than tobacco. They are about one inch long at maturity, white or grayish white with a reddish-brown head and are somewhat C-shaped.
