Abstract:An experimental slow-release formulation of grandlure, the synthesized pheromone of the male of Anthonomus grandis Boheman, proved to be 90–100% as effective in the field as male weevils when the weevils and the formulation were tested in the field for 7 days or longer. The formulation was superior to formulations used previously and was used effectively in traps for survey and research and in the Pilot Boll Weevil Eradication Experiment in S Mississippi.
