Abstract:When infested long- and short-staple cotton was ginned in conventional and high-capacity roller gins, whole cotton seeds and dead larvae of Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders) were found in the lint. The seeds were apparently the primary source of moths emerging from the roller- ginned lint. These results indicated that there is some chance of spreading pink bollworms to uninfested areas inshipments of roller-ginned lint from areas with heavy infestations of the insect.
