The stem borers, Chilo spp. , are some of the most important pests
of cereal crops throughout Asia. Larvae cause serious damage to
rice, corn, sorghum, and sugar-cane by boring into the leaf funnels
during the seedling growth stage (causing “dead-heart”) and late\
by feeding on internal stem tissue and inflorescences during the
reproductive growth stage. Feeding by Chilo larvae can result in
significant reduction in yields...

Insect Pests of Bamboos in Asia (Part 2)
Eggs, which are laid in clusters on the back surface of
leaves in the upper crown, take about a week to hatch.
Larvae remain in leaf cases for 11 months, feeding in
groups at the first two instars and individually
thereafter. The third instar larvae diapause in leaf cases
during summer and winter months and become active
in early March (Xu Tiansen 1989, 1992a; Nakahara
and Kobayashi 1963).
