European corn borer--Minnesota


Seventeen light traps were installed in 6 counties in southwest Minnesota in 1962 and 1963 and the nightly catches of moths of the European corn borer were recorded. The results show that moth catch was higher during nights with south winds and the nights immediately following such nights. This relation occurred over a large area and during the entire flight period. Moth popu1'otion in southern Minnesota was increased when south winds prevailed during the Right period. The trapping and recording were carried out by 15 FFA members, l 4-H member, and l adult farmer. The project demonstrates that these young people represent a valuable pool of human resources for use in salving certain scientific problems.
