More than 2,500 species of weevils have been identified from North America. Weevil adults are characterized by a broad, beak-like snout. Most weevils are 4 to 10 mm long, slow-moving and dark-colored. Adult feeding damage often appears as a crescent-shaped notch cut out of the leaf edge. Many weevil larvae (root weevils) feed on plant roots in the soil. Larvae are white, legless, C-shaped grubs. Weevil grubs can be distinguished from scarab grubs by their lack of legs. Some weevil larvae, such as white pine weevil and root collar weevil, develop under the bark of shoots or trunks.
