Juniper (Juniperus)-Root weevil

Numerous species

Pest description and damage Identification is important as root weevil species differ in susceptibility to pesticides and may have different life cycles. Adult weevils are dark colored, nocturnal beetles from 0.2 to 0.25 inch in length, with a snout (rostrum) and elbowed antennae. The tell-tale ragged notches are inconspicuous on juniper, however the weevils often girdle the twig, resulting in dead tips.
