Adults of Anthonomus grandis Boheman moved into trap crops established during the period when the cotton was being harvested. These "fall trap crops" were specific rows within the cotton field which remained unmodified during the harvest procedure while the remaining portion of the field was treated and harvested in the normal manner.

Trap crops established in picker-harvested fields at- tracted the greatest number of adult boll weevils. This was especially true of trap crops augmented with synthetic pheromone, Grandlure®. Less movement of weevil adults into fall trap crops established in stripper-harvested fields was observed. The greatest amount of movement into fall trap crops occurred during the initial 24 h after the trap crops were established.
