Abstract:

The cotton-boll weevil is the most destructive pest of the cotton crop. So rapid has been its spread, since it first invaded a few counties in southern Texas about 1892, that practically 90 percent of the entire Cotton Belt of the South is now infested. This infested area produces about 90 percent of the cotton crop of the United States.

This publication tells the important facts about the weevil; what it looks like, how it lives, how it grows, the damage it does, and the different ways of controlling it commonly used. Written in simple language, it is intended especially for boys and girls, although it should be useful also for grown-ups who want to learn about the weevil and how to fight it.
