The article focuses on the problem of budworms in cotton farming in North Carolina. Second generation budworms are rarely an economic problem, even on the state's conventional cotton acreage. In some years, however, when budworms eliminate most squares and terminals in scattered cotton fields, maturity delays and yield losses can occur. Although these early-June tobacco budworms in cotton are not considered a serious problem in the state, when treatable situations do arise, pyrethroids should still be avoided.
