Stalk Borer Damage in Corn

Stalk Borer

In this photo you see what is called a stalk borer. It will get into the stalk of corn and eat through it at the bottom. You can tell that you have these by having wilting whorls but the rest of the plant will be fine. If you pull out the wilted whorl and unroll it you will either find the feeding or the borer itself.
