carrot damage by carrot weevil larvae

Adult carrot weevils (Listronotus oregonensis) nibble on foliage, but the damage they cause is negligible compared to that from the larvae, which tunnel down through the crown and into the root. The damage they cause can kill young plants and often renders survivors inedible. (Photo credit: Whitney Cranshaw, Colorado State University, Bugwood.org)
