How do I get rid of this Bug!

carlos_martin(10b)December 26, 2013

Hello I'm new to this forum and wanted to ask for some help regarding this pest? He loves to eat leafs of several of my plants. I have a butterfly and hummingbird garden so I'm hesitant to nuke any of my plants. Any suggestion ? I tried neem oil already with no luck...Thank you

Carlos, I strongly suggest that you contact your local Extension office to show them this image. Make a list of the plants that are being pestered by this insect and even some pictures of the damage.

It looks like the Little Leaf Notcher Weevil, Myllocerus undatus.....a rather new introduction to Florida and one that is being watched closely.
