Online Guide Offers IPM Information for Hazelnut Weevils

An article published in the open-access Journal of Integrated Pest Management furnishes information on nut-feeding curculio species that have become pests of hazelnuts. The article covers the ecology, impact, management, and identification of the four known species of hazelnut-injuring weevils throughout the world. The authors note that “the significance of weevils that feed on and injure hazelnuts is increasing as countries such as the United States and China continue to develop hybrids of hazel plants to increase their hazelnut production.”
