Abstract:Overwintering Anthonomus grandis thurberiae Pierce were released from the bolls of wild cotton by summer rainfall totaling 4-7 inches. Emergence is poorly timed with the fruiting of the native host, Gossypium thurberi Todaro, and the emerged weevils are forced to feed on the developing foliage for an extended period. An early generation develops in thurberia squares. Factors affecting mortality of the weevil populations include the physiological condition of the thurberia plant, grazing of cattle, destruction by ground squirrels, predators, and parasites.
