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 small dark beetles 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.
