Anthonomus musculus Say, 1831 - (cranberry weevil)
This weevil is a native pest of blueberries and cranberries in parts of north-eastern North America. There is one generation per year. In spring, females lay eggs on the flowers of the host plants, where the larvae develop, destroying them in the process. Adults emerge from the pupae in late spring, feed on leaves, move to other host plants and eventually hibernate in autumn. The weevil is managed by applying insecticides during the flowering stage of blueberries.
