Cotton boll weevil and cotton plant

Boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) with cotton plant (Gossypium sp.). The boll weevil is the most destructive cotton pest in North America. The adult insects measure 3-8.5 mm long. The females lay eggs in cotton flower buds (green, bottom left). When the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the bud or boll tissue for 7-14 days before forming a pupa inside the bud (left, top). The adult develops within the pupa (left, second from top) and emerges fully grown (left, third from top) after about 5 days to cut itself out of the bud or boll. The adults feed on cotton flower buds, pollen or bolls
