This article presents information on changes in control cotton insects in Virginia. From a Virginia perspective, thrips, plant bugs, stink bugs and the European com borer are getting the most attention from cotton farmers these days. Ames Herbert, Virginia Tech Extension entomologist, presented 2004 research at the annual Southeast Cotton Conference recently in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Herbert and another entomologist Joel Faircloth documented a 10-percent stand loss in 2004 in farmer fields due to the ECB. As transgenic cotton has replaced conventional in farmer fields, caterpillars have been replaced by the plant bug, stink bug complex.
