The number one enemy of corn is the European corn borer. This is a species of moth that, in its larval stage, can cause a lot of damage to sweet corn. Female corn borers lay their eggs on the leaves of the ears. When the eggs hatch, the larvae can directly attack the developing kernels, if not all the aerial parts of the plant in addition to feeding on the foliage.
Natural predators to control insect pests
The use of trichogramma allows to fight against the moth without using insecticides. These are small wasps that are harmless to humans, but harmful to the moths. They are introduced in the fields thanks to the installation of trichocartes which are hung on the plants of corn during the period of point of the moth. The female trichogramma will then lay her eggs in the eggs of the moth. The larva of this natural predator will eat the contents of the borer’s egg and eliminate these pests.
