 The cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner), is an important polyphagous insect pest worldwide. In China, successive, economically significant outbreaks of this pest occurred during the early 1990s. Although H. armigera populations began to decline markedly by around 2000, the species has recovered again since 2010. This paper analyzes the ecological mechanisms involved in the changing pest status of the cotton bollworm, the likelihood of outbreaks under adjusted cropping structures, forecasts population trends, and proposes management methods.
