Weevils

Weevils are a large group of insects related to beetles that are distinguished by their long noses.

Terminal weevils are found on pine and spruce throughout most regions in British Columbia. They can harm tree volume and wood quality by causing stem deformation and height loss. Root collar weevils are typically pests of young plantations and can cause mortality by feeding on a tree's root collar.
