In the early twentieth century the Boll Weevil invaded the United States, destroying cotton fields as he swept northward from Texas.  Cotton's only natural enemy, the Boll Weevil destroyed 70% of South Carolina's cotton crop in two years and terrorized cotton farmers until eradication programs took hold in the mid 1970's. Today, only a bare minimum of Boll Weevils can be found in South Carolina and the state is considered to be  "WEEVIL FREE".
