WEEVILS FAQs

HOW DO I GET RID OF ROOT WEEVILS INSIDE MY HOME?

Several types of root weevils may be encountered: the black vine weevil and the strawberry root weevil. These black, one-quarter-inch-long beetles feed on vines, ivy, wild strawberries and “yew” shrubbery outside.

When populations grow large enough, wandering beetles may come indoors. To eliminate them, seal exterior cracks and holes, and treat the perimeter and foundation of your home. Long-term control includes removing the vines, ivy and other vegetation that the weevils target for breeding.
