Here are pics of the insect that is causing damage to Henry Phillips' cotton. All living insects were found shallow underground. We posed one on top of the leaf to get a better picture. I have sent in beetles to PDIC. An adjacent farmer's cotton across the path was relatively unaffected and Henry's cotton across the road shows no signs of damage but was replanted late.
