L.E. Smith, C.T. Allen, S.E. Herrera, L.W. Patton, and O. El-Lissy


The Texas Pink Bollworm Suppression/Eradication program has been operating under the supervision of the Texas Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation (TBWEF) to suppress this damaging pest of western cotton for three years in the El Paso/Trans Pecos region. The program has removed pink bollworm as an economic concern for cotton growers in the region. Pink bollworm moth populations have been suppressed by more than 91 percent from 1999 population levels. Larval boll infestations have been reduced more than 99 percent since the program began.
