In field studies conducted from 1969–75, survival of a fall population of Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner) exposed to 17 h of light and 17 h of dark was decreased in 4 out of 6 yr. Light breaks interjected during the night did not appear to prevent diapause but emergence of adults decreased in the spring in 4 out of 6 seasons when 100% survival of controls was observed. In the 3 seasons in which control survival was reduced, interjection of light breaks did not reduce further emergence of the overwintering population.
