The evil that is the weevil

Recommended Posts

Excellent set Paul, I spotted at Nettle Weevil last week, apparently the coloured scales rub off and they eventually become black.

Lucky not to have seen one in my garden...then again I might not be looking closely as you!

They come out mostly at night. If you find leaves with their edges nibbled away, go and have a look with a torch an hour after darkness falls and you may find the culprit!

This one was under a stone as I was looking for any subject  during the day.

Weevils play dead when disturbed...
