The pink bollworm moth is about one-third of an inch long in its adult form, shown here on a cotton boll. The invasive pest first showed up in the United States in 1917, and it ravaged cotton for decades before a combination of transgenic cotton and sterile insect releases helped to eradicate it a century later.
