Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows:

The black vine weevil is widespread throughout the continental United States but, until recently, has been a sporadic and minor pest of numerous container-grown ornamental plants and several field-grown berry crops. This insect has been a more serious pest in the Pacific Northwest, however, and has been increasing in pest status in other areas, such as Ohio, New York, and Michigan. The black vine weevil is also a problem for nursery growers in Australia, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, and England.
