Excerpt from Cotton, or Weevils

Insects, like all other living creatures, need food. But their eating is often of considerable importance to man because they injure or destroy crops upon which he depends for food, clothing, or other necessities.

Consider the boll weevil. To keep alive it must have green plant food. There are only two or three plants that it will eat, and cotton is one of them - ih fact, the one. It much prefers. When the weevil cannot get cotton, however, it will feed on other plants, such as okra. And hollyhocks, which are close relatives-of cotton.

The fact that this weevil feeds almost entirely on cotton is very important. When an insect eats only one kind of plant, it must have a great deal more of that plant each day for its food than it would need if it ate several kinds. Insects increase very fast and eat so much of their food plant that there is sometimes not enough left for man to use. This is true of the boll weevil. Each year there are millions of these weevils and they get hungry every day If there is no way to destroy them in the cotton fields, they will eat so much of the crop that there will not be enough left to pav the plant ers for growing it.
