Vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus)

Seen in my garden near a vine, but the Vine weevil can feed on a wide range of plants indoors and outdoors but can be especially damaging to plants grown in containers. It is a very widespread and common insect. The adult weevils eat leaves during spring and summer, but the grubs can cause the most damage over autumn and winter when they feed on plant roots. This damage can result in wilting and plant death.

Seen in Bolton Road, Chiswick in May 2022
