Western bean cutworms will be in the ear tip, although some are getting big enough to drop to the ground to overwinter. Grain from heavily infested fields is often in poor condition damaged kernels and of poor quality fungal infestation , and thus should be stored separate from good grain. Grain in poor condition is also a primary candidate for grain beetle infestation, so storing it for a long period on-farm isn't wise.
