Abstract:Damaging populations of the lesser cornstalk borer, Elusmopalpus lignosellus (Zeller), on field crops have been sporadic from year to year. Epidemic levels may occur in 1 area while those in an adjoining area may remain relatively low. Population variations may, to some extent, be influenced by changes in the annual weather pattern and various local farming practices (Dupree 1964). No single factor has been completely responsible, since population fluctuations depend on a combination of factors. Parasitism is a contributing factor and no doubt often reduces lesser cornstalk borer infestations significantly.
