Curculio nucum Linnaeus - (hazelnut weevil)
The weevil attacks hazelnuts in southern and central Europe as well as in neighbouring regions. Up to 80% yield losses have been reported. The female lays eggs into the developing hazelnut fruits in April, typically one per fruit. The mature larvae emerge from the nuts in August and drop to the ground for overwintering. The larvae may stay in the soil for more than one year and pupate in the spring.
