What can I put on corn ears to keep the bugs and worms from eating them before they are harvested?

Check out http://www.motherearthnews.com/ and check their archives. If you are talking about the worms that tend to get in at the top and eat the tip of the ear, many people swear by putting a little mineral oil on the silks when they start showing.
Here are questions related to Controlling Insects on Corn.
Last year I was told to put a few drops of something on my corn when it started to silk and it would keep the bugs and worms off the corn. It worked, I just can't remember what it was that I put on it. Can anyone help me out. I would love to save my corn before the varmints have a feast!
