A general increase in abundance of the corn borer occurred over a large portion of the lake states area in 1935 in comparison with 1934, especially west and southwest of Lake Erie, the entomologist said. It is probable that the corn producing areas now infested by the corn borer carry as great a borer potential as at any time since the introduction of the insect into this counry, Mr. Baker said. The prevalence of drought during the critical periods in the seasonal development of the borer during the last few years previous to 1935 contributed extensively to the arrest of the spread of the borer during that period, he. said.
