Fuchsia (Fuchsia)-Root weevil

Numerous species

Pest description and damage Species identification is important as root weevil species differ in susceptibility to pesticides and have different life cycles. Adult weevils are dark colored beetles from 0.2 to 0.25 inch in length, with a snout (rostrum) and elbowed antennae. Look for ragged notches on the edges of leaves, or flower petals. Damage by C-shaped larvae may cause plants to wilt and die. Larval damage is noticed in containers where successive generations of weevils and limited room for a healthy root system favors damage.
