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 small dark beetles with a snout (rostrum) and elbowed antennae. Look for ragged notches on the edges of needles. Tips may die beyond the point where weevils have girdled the twig. C-shaped white larvae may be a problem in forestry seedlings.
