Despite their name, the larvae actually feed on the roots of a variety of plants including strawberry, arborvitae and other evergreens, raspberries, and grapes. The adults notch feed along the edges of leaves. However, despite this feeding, strawberry root weevils are not considered a plant pest in Minnesota.
It is common for strawberry root weevils to enter homes looking for moisture. They are commonly found around sinks, basins, and tubs. Fortunately, strawberry root weevils are harmless to people and property. Once, they are indoors, the only necessary control is physical removal.
