I would go with D.

We need to place the modifier correctly.

(A) the lesser cornstalk borer is widely distributed, control of them is >> Control of them sounds unidiomatic
(B) widely distributed, measures to control the lesser cornstalk borer are >> 'measures' are not widely distributed
(C) widely distributed, lesser cornstalk borer control is >> 'lesser cornstalk borer control' is not widely distributed
(D) the lesser cornstalk borer is widely distributed, measures to control it are >> Correct
(E) it is widely distributed, control of the lesser cornstalk borer is >> it refers to ' control of the lesser cornstalk borer' which is wrong.
