Abstract

Present control measures for pink bollworm are based on the elimination of sources of infestation by destroying over-wintering host plants, farm hygiene, and the prevention of dispersal through seed. Complete control of over-wintering stages in the field cannot be achieved. Heat treatment of plant cotton seed is not an essential phase of control measures for pink bollworm in Queensland.
