Corn grown in Louisiana is often severely injured by the "sugar-cane moth-borer," Diatraea saccharalis Fab. Ten stalks in a very heavily infested field gave an average of 46.2 larvae, pupae, and pupae eases to the stalk. Larvae have been found, especially during the fall and winter, in several wild grasses. Some of these grasses grow abundantly in areas where the borer causes so much damage to corn. It seems certain that severe injury to the corn is due to moths that fly to it upon issuing from these grasses in the spring.
