Subject(s):apple flea-weevil
economic pest
orchard damage
Abstract:The apple flea-weevil was described by Thomas Say in 1831, from specimens taken in Posey county, Indiana. At that time it was not considered an economic pest. Seventy years later Dr. S. A. Forbes reported in the Transactions of the Illinois State Horticultural Society (1901) that the beetle had been found fairly numerous at a number of points in southern Illinois by Mr. E. S. G. Titus, but no damage to orchards was noticed until 1905 and 1906, when some was reported from the southern and western parts of the state.
