Corn ear worms

All the information I've been able to find about controlling these pests is to spray the silk of the cob with either insecticidal soap or mineral oil as soon as the silk appears. I've been doing that but with very poor results. I get and ear worm in about nine out of ten ears. I can't believe folks that grow large fields of corn go out and spray every ear yet somehow they get good ears with no worms. So my question is "What do they do to control the ear worm"? . It's my understanding that the worm drops to the ground and remains there for the winter then hatches out as a fly that flies up and lays and egg in the silk which hatches into a worm which goes into the ear. And around and around it goes. So if all that is true, can I treat the soil with something to stop the cycle? Thanking you in advance for any help you can send along. Dick Wright
