Abstract

The two most destructive insect pests of maize in Europe and the USA are the western corn rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera, and the European corn borer Ostrinia nubilalis. In Asia, these are represented by similar species, the two-spotted leaf beetle, Monolepta hieroglyphica, and the Asian corn borer, Ostrinia furnacalis, and there is great concern that D. v. virgifera could be introduced there as well. South America has recently undergone an invasion by the Old World corn earworm, Helicoverpa armigera, adding to a devastating complex of lepidopteran pests of maize such as fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, that are increasingly difficult for farmers to manage.
