Boll Weevil Smote Mighty King Cotton

Record #:
In 1892, the boll weevil migrated into the United States from Mexico and infested the nation’s cotton industries. For North Carolina cotton farmers, efforts to eradicate the boll weevil with insect control and pesticides are getting more expensive and difficult each year. A three-year weevil eradication experiment is being conducted in Halifax, Edgecombe and Northampton counties to seek a dependable method of eradicating the boll weevil.
