YOUR HELP IS NEEDED LOOK FOR LARGE WEEVILS EATING TENDER CITRUS FOLIAGE.
The West Indian Sugarcane Root Borer is a potentially serious pest of citrus. The
adult beetles eat deep notches in tender leaves. The larvae eat the root.
We need to know if this new pest exists outside the regulated area near Apopka where
eradication is underway.
The weevils are 1/2 to 3/4 inch in length and 3/16 to 1/4 inch in width. They have
3 definite dark stripes extending 2/3 of the length of the back, sometimes with less
distinct stripes between. These are in contrast to the pale green, tan or orange color
of the back. They have a stubby snout bearing elbow type antennae with terminal knobs.
They are not likely to be confused with any other beetle found on citrus. If you see
any notify me at once and give your name an location.
