Aside from the black vine weevil Otiorhynchus sulcatus, which is the best-known pest within this genus, numerous other Otiorhynchus species have been increasingly recognized as pests in recent years. Nocturnal adult weevils and soil-inhibiting larvae are in principle difficult to control with biological or chemical plant protection products. In addition, each Otiorhynchus species shows a different phenology or may have a varying susce...
