Caption: Boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) on a cotton (Gossypium sp.) boll. Boll weevils are the most destructive cotton pest in North America. Female boll weevils (seen here) 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.
