Citrus Root Weevil (Pachnaeus opalus). Unfortunately this one was found on one of our lime trees, which are still pretty small. The adults feed on the leaves, and a female can lay 4,000 eggs in her lifetime. Newly hatched larvae fall off the leaves, burrow in the ground, and feed on the roots, causing the most damage.  We can use insecticides to get rid of them, but generally try to avoid them.  Apparently we can also buy and unleash a special strain of microscopic nematodes (roundworms) to hunt out and destroy the larvae in the soil.  The people who sell them claim they aren't harmful to humans or pets at all, but I can't say I'll be disappointed if I have to find something to take care of the nematodes, and then something to take care of that, etc. etc., until we have a lion living in our backyard as the top predator. . . . #backyardwildlife #insects #wildlifephotography #science #springwatch #animals #wildlife #insects_of_our_world #macrolove #macro #closeup #nature #naturepics #naturelovers #nikond3400 #nikon📷 #macro_mood #macrophotography #insects_macro #amateurphotographer #ip_insects #macroclique #macro_holic #macrooftheday #loves_macro #macro_highlight #macro_beautiful_world #allkindsofnature #exclusive_wildlife
