***Amended: We had Costco enchilada's later this evening and they were packed with black olives (which I normally love) but I couldn't eat them because they looked and felt just like the worm. Sorry, Joy, but I won't be eating the olives you pick out of your food for a while.
Armyworms: Are worms ranging from green to black in color and have three legs in the middle of their bodies so they creep across a leaf. The brown dusty adult moth lays its eggs in bunches covered with white scales. The newly hatched worms feed in groups, skeletonizing the leaf. As the grow they move out and devastate a lettuce plant. They will feed on the crown of the lettuce plant.
