Help identifying insect larvae

Asked September 10, 2015, 8:13 AM EDT

I'm having trouble identifying the insect larvae in the attached pictures. My best guess based on what I could find online is European corn borer, but I'm not really sure. They appeared on a wooden table on my porch yesterday, 9/9/2015. I live just outside of Berwick. Any help you could provide is very much appreciated.

I am sorry but it i cannot say just by looking at your photo's. There are many things more to determine what type it is such as number of legs, how it moves and where it was found. Here are some great links where you can read more about them and decide based on your findings. Or if possible bring in a sample to your local extension where they can try to determine what it is.
