Certain varieties may sometimes show more infestation than others, owing to differences in the size and growth stage of the plants when the eggs of the insect were being laid.

As a result of special investigations, reductions in the degree of infestation by the European corn borer [Pyrausta nubilalis[Ostrinia nubilalis], Hb.] have been noted in several of the areas in south-western Ontario where compulsory control has been enforced. Of 62 collections of the borer made in Ontario and Quebec, 59 were from districts not previously found : W. N. Keenan. Introduction: In this lab, you will use a simulation to further your understanding of independent and dependent variables. You will be studying the level of European Corn Borer infestation in various environments. Open the Simulator at: (alternately, use google to search for "mhhe virtual labs") 1. Read the introduction.

If European corn borer damage is also found, include it as part of the percent injury. For example, if scouting reveals that 22 percent of the plants show FAW injury and 11 percent of the plants show ECB injury the total injury level is 33 percent, which would exceed the action threshold, and a control measure would be recommended. The larval stage (borer) damages plants by destroying internal plant tissue as they feed. More control information on specific species of borers like European corn borers, iris borers and squash vine borers can be found below. IPM Note: Look for dark or discolored areas with sap and sawdust-like residue on or around host plants. This can help.
