Abstract:Surveys of boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis Boheman, in selected cottonfields in Arizona in 1965 and 1966 indicated infestations of the boll weevil were widespread. Populations were greater in 1965 than in 1966, and larger populations occurred in stub cotton than in planted cotton The boll weevil complex in cultivated cotton in Arizona attacks bolls throughout the season. Large populations of potential overwintering weevils in bolls were destroyed with stalk shredders and clean plowing.
