Black Vine WeevilBlack Vine Weevils are part of the Curculionidae family of Snout and Bark beetles. They originally came from Europe but now have spread to a variety of other places including Massachusetts. They can hibernate for the winter in homes, but they are quite harmless. As their name indicates, they like to eat bark.
We found this in our kitchen in late March 2014 - probably coming out of hibernation and ready for the spring!
