Vine Weevil Information
Vine weevil is a black beetle that attacks a wide range of plants, inside and outside, but is especially damaging to plants grown in pots.
It is one of the most widespread, common and devastating garden problems. The grubs of the vine weevil cause the most damage over autumn and winter when they feed on plant roots, the adult weevils eat leaves during spring and summer. This damage can result in your plants wilting and dying.
Plants growing in pots and containers, outdoors or under cover, are most likely to be severely damaged by vine weevil grubs. Plants growing in open ground are less likely to be damaged, although heavy infestations of grubs can occur on strawberries.
