Annual yield loss continues to occur from European corn borer (ECB) even though the use of B.t. corn products have contributed to an area-wide suppression of ECB populations. Multiple insecticide applications may be necessary to provide adequate control of first and second generations of ECB. Expected control of ECB larvae with insecticide applications ranges from 60 to 80%. Corn products with B.t. technology are an effective option to help protect yield potential from ECB damage.
