Late Season Use of Boll Weevil Attract and Kill Devices

An attract-and-kill device for the cotton boll weevil Anthonomus grandis Boheman, has been developed and tested over the last four years. The concept was originally designed for early control use prior to the major fruiting period in cotton. Results from recent observations and field tests new lead researchers to rethink the original idea and consider late season as well as early season deployment of these devices as possible management tools.
