In the one-generation area 11,506,154 vehicles were inspected, 279,152 ears of com were intercepted, and 375 borers were found. In the two-generation area 3,997,735 vehicles were inspected, 60,028 ears of corn were intercepted, and 1,297 borers were found.

There were no heavy losses in the Great Lakes section this season due to corn borer damage.

Decreases in borer population, compared to 1929, of 21 per cent in Michigan, 58 per cent in Ohio, and 29 per cent in Pennsylvania, were indicated; and increases of 35 per cent in Indiana, and 11 per cent in New York were shown.

Losses in sweet corn, as well as to susceptible vegetables and flowering plants, occurred in the most heavily infested portions of southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
