Resumen


This study was conducted for determining the pioneer sex of agave weevil on agave plants. Field experiments were made on plantations of Agave tequilana Weber var. Azul in Jalisco, and Agave angustifolia Haw. and Agave cupreata Trel. & Berger in Guerrero. It was found that both sexes were able to start colonizing agave host plants. Most of the females that colonized host plants were gravid.
