This study tested efficacy of Btk cotton (Coker 312 was parent) on pink bollworm and other leaf feeding lepidopterans. No signficant differences in sweep net sample numbers of six beneficials (Chrysoperla carnea, Hippodamia convergens, Geocoris punctipes, Orius tristicolor, Collops vittatus, and Nabis spp.) or Lygus hesperus. Sweep samples were taken during one field season on three different dates.
Nontarget sampling was limited
