Small beetle 2- 3 mm long, reddish-brown with a long snout.

You find this 2 mm ( 1/10 in.) long insect with a characteristic weevil snout. What type of weevil is this?


That’s Right!


This is a picture of a strawberry clipper weevil. While clipper weevils and root weevils both have the characteristic snout clipper weevils are much smaller (2- 3 mm, 1/10 in.) than root weevils (5- 11 mm, 1/5- ½ in.).
