Cuculio weevil - UPDATE 7/10/2008


This week high levels of Cuculio weevil have been seen damaging vines (and olives). They emerge for the soil and at night and chew leaves and even whole buds.
In some vineyards in the areas west of Willunga severe damage has occurred. In the vineyard pictured whole panels have been stripped of all shoots and the buds have been chewed out.
