Pest description and damage Identification is important: species differ in susceptibility to pesticides and may have different life cycles. Adult weevils are small dark nocturnal beetles with a snout (rostrum) and elbowed antennae. In addition to the ragged notches in leaves (often not noticed) the weevils may girdle some of the stems resulting in dead branch tips. The C-shaped, legless weevil larvae are white with tan heads, up to 0.5 inch in size. They rarely cause significant damage in established landscapes.
