Nut weevils can be very serious pests of native and non-native nut trees. These damaging insects begin to attack the kernels in the developing nuts while the nuts are still on the tree. However, problems often are not noticed until the nuts are harvested and opened. Occasionally, these weevil grubs are found in homes or other places nuts are stored.
