Common Corn Insects
Injury to corn by wireworms occurs usually In spring soon after planting. The failure of seed to sprout, or the dying or withering down of corn plants when two feet or less in height, both indicate wireworm attack. If the field so affected has been in grass recently, the injury is most likely to be that of wireworms. Although the wireworms do not cause any visible injury to grass, when such land is put into corn they concentrate upon the hills of the planted grain, causing much damage.
