Abstract:Adult boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis Boheman, reared on a cottonseed-meal diet emerged sooner and over a shorter period, were heavier, lived longer, and females produced more eggs than weevils reared under similar conditions on a cottonleaf-meal diet. The cottonseed meal is available from commercial sources and is less expensive than cottonleaf meal.
