Corn Borer Menace On March In Kossuth Area tti : t '!•• European corn borer U8tis have increased tremendous ly in Iowa within the last year, ftfthual fall survey figures released this week by Dr. H. M. Harris, JOWa State college entomology department head, and received By A. L. Brown, county agent. The survey, conducted jointly by i the State Department of Ag- riculture, the U. S. Bureau of Entomology and Iowa State college, showed that corn borer populations have built up until they now infest every county in the state. Heaviest infestation continues to center in areas of best corn production, Harris said. However, the spreading of the borers to all parts of the State 30TH ANNUAL STATMBNT DECEMBER 31, 1947 ALGONA FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION ALGONA, IOWA ASSETS First Morlgjigc Loans ... ... .... $ FHA Title 1 Loans __________ IIIIIIII.IIIIII.

A. rosier means that wiestcrn Iowa faiw- ers and those in other parts who had not previously been bothered must how becbme "corn boter conscious". This wide spread /of the borefs presents a potentially permanent problem to farmers" fn all sections of lovva, Harris feels. The sufVey also disclosed d higher percentage of young fall borers'than normal. This increase in 'young borers was probably due to the late spring, Harris bel'ieves, Because of the late, mild fall, these late hatched borers will probably get through the winter without being killed, he said. Highest infestation was in Bremer county where an average of 469 borers per 100 stalks of corn was reported. Lowest population count came from Page and Osceola counties with an estimated 2,8 borers to each 100 corn plants. The infestation in Kossuth county, according to county extension director Brown, was 50.2.
