Pea leaf weevil

Sitona lineata

The larvae towards the end of April and the adults towards the end of May. In the open, the adults appear in April and May, as well as in July and August, and it therefore appears that the beetle is double-brooded in Germany, as in England. In order to reduce the damage in the larval stage, which occurs on chicory and beets in April, it is advisable to sow later in districts liable to attack. Since the larvae begin to pupate at the end of April and beginning of May, the larval stage will be almost completed before the plants appear. It is also desirable to sow more thickly in the infested areas.
