Infestations were not found in 17 of 34 cotton fields in west Texas in which wing traps baited with male Anthonomus grandis Boheman, were used. Moreover, adult weevils were found in only 7 of the 17 fields, and populations of boll weevils did not reach economically damaging levels in any of the fields. However, traps around all 34 fields captured boll wee\'i1s in low to moderately high numbers. The traps suppressed more than 80% of the boll weevils, with traps placed around the fields in tiers, and used in conjunction with trap plots treated with aldicarb giving the best results.
