Heavily tunneled stalks of grain corn suffer from lodging, reducing the capacity for machine harvesting. A major pest of corn, the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) will also feed on over different garden plants including peppers, snap beans, potatoes, tomatoes, apples and to corn is caused by the young larvae which chew leaves and tassels.

European corn borer infestations differ over time and among geographic regions in the state. Where ECB is active, the development of borers in corn stalks interferes with the flow of nutrients in the host plant, enhances infection by stalk diseases.

European Corn Borer larvae feed on several crops species including corn, cotton, and grain sorghum. Thresholds for pesticide application have been established in Missouri only for corn. Two or three generations are possible in Missouri each year. European Corn Borer.

Scouting Although all refuge fields should be scouted every year for European corn borer, mated females are often attracted to and lay eggs in the tallest cornfields first. Fields with chronic corn borer problems can be planted to the BT-corn borer corn varieties for control.

However, if the BT-corn varieties are planted, growers must plant a BT-free refuge according to the label requirements. The widespread planting of BT-Cornborer corn has dramatically reduced the corn borer populations across NYS.

Scout fields for determining the levels of corn borer present and use the management worksheets to assess the economic necessity of treating with an insecticide.

Development of resistance to B.t. may be delayed because untreated areas can provide a source of susceptible moths to dilute the buildup of B.t. resistant genes in the European corn borer population. The European corn borer can live on more than species of plants, so alternatives to corn as a host exist.

How Resistance Could Develop in European Corn Borers (ECB) In any population of European corn borers, a few of the borers will have two copies of genes for resistance (rr), some will have one copy of the gene (rs) and most will have none (ss).

Resistance genes are believed to be rare. The European Corn Borer and Its Control Prepared by Entomology Research Branch, Agricultural Research Service. The European corn borer 1 has become one of our most destructive pests of corn.

The western strain of the pest feeds primarily on corn. European corn borer overwinter as larvae in corn stalks and other residue left on the surface from the previous growing season.

As day length increases and average day temperatures exceed 10°C (50°F), the larvae pupate. Pupae are found within larval feeding tunnels and require 2 weeks to develop before adults emerge.European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) has three or more yearly generations in North Carolina.
