The next pests we will have to scout for in cotton are plant bugs. Here is a YouTube video with Alabama Extension entomologists Dr. Ron Smith and Dr. Scott Graham on scouting and control of plant bugs in cotton.

This video was made last year but still some great information. The one correction on the video is that Dr. Graham meant to say that the plant bug threshold with the sweep net is 8 plant bugs per 100 sweeps not 8 plant bugs per 25 sweeps.
