How Insects Affect the Cotton Plant and Means of Combating Them

Description: "The cotton plant is unusually attractive to insects and probably no other cultivated crop has as large a list of insect enemies. Among these are some of the most destructive pests in the history of agriculture. Many cotton pests come to the cotton from other crops or from weeds around the fields. Weeds should not be allowed to grow. Rotation of crops is of assistance in controlling cotton pests. Poisons seldom are needed, except in poisoned baits in the spring and against red spiders, grasshoppers, and 'worms' when they threaten the crop. Thorough fall plowing, winter cover crops, early spring preparation, and repeated cultivation during the season are important measures of insect control. The cotton plants should be turned under in the fall. This bulletin describes the work of many insects and gives suggestions for their control." -- p. 2. Among the insects discussed are ants, cutworms, may beetles, aphids, grassworms, grasshoppers, bollworms, wireworms, and crickets.
