Tobacco Budworm and Bollworm Management Strategies in the Absence of Boll Weevil

W. R. Lambert and G. A. Herzog, J. Ruberson and J. Lewis


Since completion of the Southeastern Boll Weevil Eradication Program, insecticide use has declined. Concurrently, populations of beneficial arthropods have increased and both bollworm and tobacco budworm infestations have required fewer treatments. New strategies are evolving which exploit naturally occurring biocontrol agents, primarily by avoiding disruptive chemical insecticide applications.
