Abstract:When grandlure was used in conjunction with in-field traps to aggregate populations of Anthonomus grandis Boheman in 3 diverse areas of Mississippi and Alabama, ca. 6 times as many boll weevils were found in cotton near traps than in cotton 100 ft or more from traps. Also, the percentage of egg-punctured squares near traps was consistently 1.5 to 2 times higher throughout the test than in cotton 100 ft from the traps. Grand lure and infield traps have potential in population management of boll weevils.
