Boll Weevil Emergence Trends Across Oklahoma, 1993 - 1995

Miles Karner, Jerry Goodson


Boll weevil monitoring activities across Oklahoma were coordinated by Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service. This surveillance program helped keep producers in all regions of the State informed of boll weevil emergence trends each year. Boll weevil catches have steadily increased from 68,362 adults trapped in 1993 to 207,706 adults trapped in 1995. The widespread economic loss inflicted across Southwest and South Central Oklahoma since 1993 reflects this increase in weevil survival. Besides helping formulate early-season control strategies, this information is valuable in planning the proposed boll weevil eradication program and upcoming referendum for the state.
