Bon Appétit interviews Handley about corn earworm

David Handley, vegetable and small fruit specialist at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke to Bon Appétit about the parasitic corn earworm. “They’re cannibalistic. This aggressive tête-à-tête, which happens in secret beneath corn’s pale green husks, is why you’ll often find just one single critter feasting on your cob,” Handley said.
