Abstract:field inspections and wing traps containing live male Anthonomus grandis Boheman were used in 1968 to study the seasonal movement of boll weevils near the High Plains of Texas. Peak populations of overwintered weevils occurred in cotton fields within 4-5 weeks after planting. Movement of boll weevils began early in the spring before cotton was planted, decreased greatly during midsummer, and increased again to a very high level late in August. Relatively large numbers of weevils were captured in both the spring and fall at distances more than 6 miles from cotton.
