Caption: Cotton boll weevil larva (Anthonomus grandis) inside an immature cotton plant (Gossypium sp.) boll. The cotton boll weevil is the most destructive cotton pest in North America. The females lay eggs in cotton flower buds and when the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the bud or boll tissue for 7-14 days before forming a pupa inside the bud. The adult develops within the pupa and emerges fully grown after cutting itself out of the boll. Photographed in Mississippi, USA.
