It?s been discovered that the holes bored in cornstalks in a California crop circle that?s believed to be a hoax were made by the European Corn Borer. The European Corn Borer is an agricultural threat, and this is apparently the first infestation ever found in California. Did whoever usually makes crop circles in the U.K. bring their bugs along with them?
The presence of European Corn Borers was confirmed when stalks from the field were examined by specialists at the University of California/Davis. State agricultural officials intend to examine the field and the area around it further.
