Vine Weevil - Identification Photo.

Grapevine weevil.
Look for signs of berry damage from vine weevil pictured above. Levels of weevil seem to be higher than normal in some vineyards and in these cases they are causing damage to the developing fruit. Damage seems to be heaviest where there is no ground cover around the vineyard. All insects are attracted to vines at this time of the year because the surrounding vegetation had dried out.

Bunch damage. Berries 2-4mm approximately EL-30.
