1. European Corn Borer 

The European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) is a moth species whose larvae are known as significant pests of maize (corn). Native to Europe, this pest has spread to North


America and affects various crops. The larvae bore into corn stalks, ears, and cobs, causing substantial damage and yield loss. Control methods include crop rotation, biological control using natural predators, and genetically modified Bt corn, which is resistant to the borer.

2. African Corn Borer

The African corn borer (Busseola fusca) is a moth species that is a major pest of maize


and other cereal crops in Africa. The larvae of this species bore into the stems and ears of corn plants, causing significant damage and yield reduction. Control methods include crop rotation, use of resistant crop varieties, biological control with natural predators, and chemical insecticides. The African corn borer is particularly challenging to manage due to its ability to infest a wide range of host plants and its resistance to some control measures.

3. Asian Corn Borer

The Asian corn borer (Ostrinia furnacalis) is a moth species that is a significant pest of maize and other cereal crops in Asia. The


larvae bore into the stems, leaves, and ears of corn plants, leading to substantial crop damage and reduced yields. Control methods for the Asian corn borer include the use of resistant maize varieties, biological control agents like parasitoids and predators, chemical insecticides, and integrated pest management strategies. This pest poses a major challenge due to its widespread distribution and the extensive damage it can cause to maize crops.

4. Pink Stem Borer

The pink stem borer (Sesamia inferens) is a moth species that infests various cereal


crops, including rice, maize, and sugarcane, primarily in South and Southeast Asia. The larvae, which are pinkish in color, bore into the stems and occasionally the panicles or ears of these crops, causing significant damage and yield losses. Effective management strategies for the pink stem borer include crop rotation, the use of resistant crop varieties, timely planting, biological control with natural enemies, and the application of chemical insecticides. This pest is notable for its adaptability and ability to affect a wide range of host plants.

5.Sugarcane Borer

The sugarcane borer is an insect pest that significantly impacts sugarcane crops. It is the larval stage of the moth species,


primarily Diatraea saccharalis. The borer's larvae bore into sugarcane stalks, feeding on the internal tissues, which can lead to reduced plant vigor, decreased yield, and increased susceptibility to diseases. Effective management of sugarcane borers typically involves a combination of cultural practices, biological control agents, and, in some cases, chemical insecticides.

6.Maize Stalk Borer

The maize stalk borer refers to several species of moth larvae that are significant


pests of maize (corn) and other cereal crops. The most common species include *Busseola fusca*, *Chilo partellus*, and *Sesamia calamistis*. These larvae bore into the stems and cobs of maize plants, causing damage that can lead to reduced plant vigor, stunted growth, lower yields, and increased vulnerability to secondary infections. Management strategies for maize stalk borers often involve integrated pest management (IPM) practices, including crop rotation, resistant maize varieties, biological control agents, and selective use of insecticides.

7.Sorghum Borer

The sorghum borer is an insect pest that primarily affects sorghum crops. Key species include *Chilo partellus*, *Busseola fusca*, and *Sesamia calamistis*. These larvae bore into sorghum stems and panicles, feeding on the internal tissues, which can lead to


significant yield losses, reduced plant vigor, and increased susceptibility to diseases. Effective management of sorghum borers typically involves integrated pest management (IPM) strategies, including the use of resistant crop varieties, timely planting, biological control agents, and, where necessary, the application of insecticides.
