DENVER (AP) – Cold weather and little snow on the eastern plains has cut this year’s outbreak of miller moths.

Colorado State University professor Whitney Cranshaw says the annual migration of miller moths from the Eastern Plains to the mountains is in full swing.

According to the Denver Post, entomologists say cold weather and little snow cover on the plains killed larvae and cut the population of the pesky insects this year.

Cranshaw says his prediction is based on the lack of crop damage caused by the armyworm, the moth’s larva, which he says could be a good sign for the summer alfalfa and wheat harvests.
