Field studies were done during 1986 and 1987 to evaluate effects of Blissus leucopterus leucopterus (Say) feeding in field corn, Zea mays L. Corn plants were infested with adult chinch bugs at two stages of plant development. Plants damaged by natural i˜festations of chinch bugs were assigned to one of four damage categories (no damage, ˜hght, mo˜erate,. and heavy damage) and allowed to mature. Results from plants artificially Infested with chinch bugs at the V2 and V5 stages of development indicated that V2 plants suffered a greater reduction in ear weight and length than did V5 plants. In plants naturally infested with chinch bugs, reductions in ear weight, and length increased in each damage category.
