In a detailed study of the behavior of Anthonomus grandis Bobeman in frego bract and 'Deltapine Smoothleaf' (DPSL) cotton, 2.5 times as many weevils were trappped in or around the DPSL as around the frego bract cotton. Also. boll weevils moved somewhat more in frego than in DPSL cotton, since about 1/2 as many introduced weevils were recovered in frego as in DPSL. In DPSL, 64% of the weevils recovered were found in squares, only 20% were recovered in squares on frego cotton. Both overwintered, and current-generation on female weevils deposited about twice as many eggs per hour in the DPSL as in the frego bract cotton.
