Bud worm eggs can be found singly on the growing tips and buds of plants. They are white when first laid but they change color to yellow and brown as they get closer to hatching. Adult moths are olive to red to brown with numerous dark spots and blotches. The hind wings are pale gray with dark veins and a dark band along the lower edge. Moths are usually active during the evening and night.
