Most of his life the larva lives as a stem borer. When almost fully fed it lives for a short wile in a case, made out of a cut end of a spike. Next, before the winter, it drops to the ground, leaves its case, and pupates in a siken cocoon in the mud.
Cases can best be looked for around October 10 (Emmet ao, 1996a).
