an armyworm.

Major pest infesting the crops during this season is an armyworm. Notably found in every farmers field and in orchards, Lawns etc. It's creepy to see massive number of these worms crawling all over the lawn ,on the roads and in vicinity of house.  The insect posses an eyesore characteristics. They have dirty appearance and disgusting body . Since they come in large number like an army,  they are frequently  stepped over by humans or ran over by cars . Already they have ambushed all the grasses near our house and are  resilient to turn back. They crawl over the concrete floor and even enter inside .
Being saga dawa this month is sacred and we are forbidden from any killing and destroying of any lives regardless of the magnitude of their infestation. It's a big irony because,this season is time for growing veggies and paddy cultivation. We have to decide in becoming a sympathezer or curb this pest infestation. my biggest concern is that if we don't act outright these pest would surely inflict a considerable loss to the farmers.
