The Larger Corn Stalk-Borer

The Larger Corn Stalk-Borer

Date: 1933
Creator: Ainslie, George G.
Description: Revised edition. This report discusses a pale, dark-spotted caterpillar known as the larger cornstalk-borer which bores into and weakens cornstalks. "Only corn is injured seriously by this insect; some of the larger grasses are food plants, and sugar cane sometimes is damaged slightly. There are two generations in a season. As the second generation passes the winter in the corn roots, if the roots are destroyed or plowed, the pest will be largely subdued. The injury is worst where corn follows corn, so rotation of crops will help to destroy the borer. This bulletin gives the life history of the borer, its feeding habits, and methods of combating it." -- p. ii

The Larger Corn Stalk-Borer

The Larger Corn Stalk-Borer

Date: 1919
Creator: Ainslie, George G.
Description: This report discusses a pale, dark-spotted caterpillar known as the larger cornstalk-borer which bores into and weakens cornstalks. "Only corn is injured seriously by this insect; some of the larger grasses are food plants, and sugar cane sometimes is damaged slightly. This bulletin gives the life history of the insect, its feeding habits, and methods of combating it. There are two generations in a season, so greater vigilance is necessary. The second generation passes the winter only in the corn roots, so if these are destroyed or plowed under deeply, the pest will be largely decreased. The injury is worst where corn follows corn, so rotation of crops will help to destroy the pest." -- p. 2

Eradicating Tall Larkspur on Cattle Ranges in the National Forests

Date: 1917
Creator: Aldous, A. E. (Alfred Evan), 1886-1938
Description: "Poisoning by tall larkspur causes heavy losses of cattle in the National Forests each year. During the last three years 5,500 head of cattle were lost annually. The most effective way to prevent this loss is to grub out the plants, a method of eradication which gives permanent results; other expedients are likely to be temporary.... Results of grubbing work in National Forest ranges, together with the methods of operation, the tools to use, the best time to do the work, and the best way to dispose of the grubbed plants, are given in the following pages." -- p. 2
