Abstract:This study of predators of the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner), conducted for 5 years in Iowa, Minnesota, and Kansas, 4 years in Missouri, and 2 years in Nebraska, indicated that predators play an important part in population fluctuation of this insect at some locations during some years. However, predators cannot be depended upon year after year, or in any given year, to play a significant part in manipulating a population at a specific location.
