Boll Weevil

The state of Texas has taken the fight to the enemy and on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015, announced a victory over its foe — boll weevils.

In a press release, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller reported that the West Texas Maintenance Area has been declared eradicated, and the Northern Backlands, Southern Backlands, Upper Coastal Bend and South Texas Winter Garden zones have been deemed functionally eradicated. Texas ranks No. 1 nationally for cotton production, and this announcement comes as a milestone in the efforts to eliminate the boll weevil from Texas.
