Comparisons of Selected Insect Control Strategies in the Texas Gulf Coast

S. W. Hopkins and D. L. Biediger


Selected cotton insect control strategies were compared in two field studies in the Texas gulf coast. Several of the strategies involved multiple applications of Bacillus thuringiensis products and ovicides for control of Heliothis spp. These strategies were compared to conventional insect control involving pyrethroids. Comparisons of insect density and damage, crop yield, and total profits per acre are discussed.
