Abstract:When wing traps baited with male Anthonomus grandis Boheman were placed around small cotton fields in a ratio of 1 trap per 2 to 3 acres, a positive correlation was found between the number of overwintered weevils captured and the number observed in the field. However, the estimate obtained by sampling the number of weevils hibernating in woods trash did not correlate with the number captured or observed. The location of traps in relation to overwintering sites influenced the captures on the traps, and time of entry of weevils into the fields appeared to be related to the beginning of fruiting by the cotton.
