The ballad of the boll weevil

video
The Boll Weevil is Coleopteran famous for destroying cotton crops during the Great Depression. There are a ton of stories and songs dedicated to this pest, including this one by the Skillet Lickers. Usually these tales are about a Boll Weevil taking the home of a poor farmer or share cropper.
