INSECTS AND SPIDERS FOUND IN SPANISH MOSS, GIN TRASH,
AND WOODS TRASH, AND ON WILD COTTON

By C. F. Rainwater, Division of Cotton Insect Investigationsl/



In the course of cotton insect investigations numerous species of
insects are encountered. Ordinarily the majority of these are unknown or
receive only casual attention. Some of the insects ordinarily encountered,
other than those to which our attention is directed, are of more or less
economic importance. The writer has had occasion to observe numerous species
of insects and spiders while engaged in various cotton insect investigations,
and a large number of those found in Spanish moss, gin trash, and woods
trash, and on wild cotton have been collected and submitted to specialists
for identification. Many of the species collected from Spanish moss and
woods trash have no relation to the cotton plant, but most of those collected
from gin trash and wild cotton do have such relationship, even though they
may not be of economic importance.

The insects recorded herein from Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides
L.) were all collected in Madison Parish, near Tallulah, in northeastern
Louisiana. Examinations of this material have been made regularly for a
number of years, late in the fall and again early in the spring, to determine
the relative number of boll weevils (Anthonomus grandis Boh.) that enter
hibernation and survive the winter in this material. During the fall exam-
inations of 1930 and 1931 attempts were made to collect all the insects that

were present ir. t.e moss at t'.e time tUe examinations were made. The moss
was pulled in festoor.n from trees on vwl.ich it g.e-A -ea: tl-.e edges of -
fields, placed in arge sacks, and bought to t.e laboratory for examinatici..
Tlhe moss was examined by taking a Email amount at a time from the sacks,
placing it on a long, flat table covered with white cloth, and carefully
tearing it apart so as to dislodge the insects. Some insects were p.::;.t
in surprisingly la:-Le numbers ,:i.ile others were extremely scarce. As the
writer's interest was mainly to determine the species of insects present in
the rcss rather than their elativee numbers, no records were kept as tc the
scarcity or abundance of any of the insects collected, except, of course,
ti.e boll weevil. Numerous spiders were present in this moss, but no effort
was made to collect them.

Each year, during the cotton ginning season, the Division of PJink
Boll''orm Control, Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine, places portable
gin-trash machines at various locations throughout the cotton belt for the
purpose of detecting the presence of the pink bollworm (Pectinophora gos-
sypiella (Saund.)). The trash separated from the cotton during the process
of cleaning and ginnirng is run through a machine especially designed by R. E.
M:ronald to assist in detecting the pink bollworm. This machine is so con-
structed as to eliminate that portion of the trash above and below the ex-
tremes in the size of pink bollworm larvae. The remaining portion of the
trash is carefully examined for pink bollworm larvae. Numerous other species
of insects ar.d spider are present in this material. In the fall of 1932,
while the writer ,.'a working in cooperation with the Division of Pink Boll-
wvorm Control, it -..as decided to determine which species of insects add spid-
ers were actually pieZernt in tl.is material. The trash was all from cotton
that had been ginned in norti.en Florida in the vicinity of Chipley. All
specimens of ii.sectV and Lpiders seer in two representative samples of the
trash, after it Lad gone tlrcugh ti.e -,,mi.e, were collected and sent to
."ashingtoij for idE.,tificatioi.. The a .ompai.yi.. list shows what species
were found.

During the late fall of 192-,t1. le win-ier of 1932-33, and the spring
of 1933, ini.ensive surveys we:e mace Lo determine ,the species of insects.
injurious '.o wild cotton in the southern -art of Florida. The pink bollwo-m
had already heen discovered in commercially grown cotton in northern Florida,
and its origir. had been traced to the wild cotton which grows in large areas
in Southern Florid., particularly alonoc the v.est coast south of Tampa. on
mar.y of the la:. and keys off tc'l: the caz t and v.est coasts, o. '..
long trying g of "MIai,,il1a.i keyi.s" So'.ith of the peninsula, to and including the
iz..r.d of Fey '.e.:t, and on som.e su.all islai.ds southwest of Key West. Thie
e'te,,t of wild cotton growth in Florida was largely determined during this
period while the writer was working in .oor.eration with the Division of Fink
Eoll',orm Control. Ti.e wild cotton, of these pacts of Florida is perennial in
growth and often attain-s the size of small trees, some plants attaining a
heil.t of 30 or more feet, with diaaeteis of from 4 to 6 inches at their
taEoc. Srecimers of the plants were identified by specialists in the Bureau
of Pla',t Industry as Cg.ssyplium hirsutum L,, the-same species as our common
uplar.d cotton. Ti.e plants produce cotton abuiidan'ly, but the lint is too
short to be of commercial value.

During the time that these surveys were being made an attempt was
made by the writer to collect every species of insect found on this wild
cotton, whether of. economic importance or not. A large number of these
were reared from different parts of the plant, and it is recognized that
some of the insects included in the list (especially some of the Dip-
tera) may have emerged from the sand which -'.'a.; placed in the cages rather
than from the caged material. Some of the more important species found
during this period have been included in a previous article. 2/

During recent years workers of the Division of Cotton Insect Investi-
gations have examined woods trash, collected from near the edges of cotton
fields during the winter months, for hibernating boll '..eevils. At the Flor-
ence, S. C., laboratory samples of trash are collected from different dis-
tances into the woods (up to 150 feet) from the edges of cotton fields. Each
sample consists of all the surface trash from a 3 by 6 foot area, the trash
being carefully raked up, placed in sacks, labeled, and brought to the labor-
atory for examination. Ten samples are usually taken from each field lo-
cation, and as many locations are sampled during the winter as time permits.
The trash material, after being brought to the laboratory, is first run
through a mai.iine designed by F. F. Bondy, which eliminates the trash larger
and smaller thai. the boll weevils and retains that portion between these
extremes in a separate compartmenLt. TIle trash is then carefully examined
for boll weevils by placing small quantities of it at a time on a table
covered with a white cloth.

During the first winter (1936-37) of these trash examinations at
Florence, the writer observed that a large number of insects other than the
boll weevil were present in the trash. Consequently, during the winters of
1937-38 and 1938-39 attempts were made to collect all the species present
in the trash, and it is believed that the list includes the majority of those
insects likely to be found in surface woods trash in Florence County, S. C.

The amount of material available to the writer represents only a small
proportion of that examined each year, especially of the gin trash. How-
ever, since any records concerning ii.sects are of potential interest and im-
portance in adding to our knowledge, the results are presented here.

The following list of insects and spiders represents the species found
by systematic collections made in Spanish' moss in northeastern Louisiana,
in gin trash in northern Florida, in woods trash in South Carolina; and on
wild cotton in southern Florida.
