Vine Weevil

 

 

 

 

 

The Vine Weevil is a beetle that attacks a wide range of plants, both indoors and outdoors, but especially plants grown in containers. It is one of the most common and devastating garden pests. The adult weevils eat plant leaves during spring and summer, but it is the grubs that cause the most damage over autumn and winter when they feed on plant roots, causing wilting, and often plant death. Plants growing in pots or other containers, outdoors or under cover, can be severely damaged by vine weevil grubs. Plants growing in the open ground are less susceptible.
