The report has assessed and collated both published and unpublished information as well as documented personal communications with research and field officers pertaining to the morphologies, life histories, methods of spread and control options of the three weevil species. Who is the report targeted at? The report is aimed at assisting the pasture industry, and in particular the lucerne industry, in evaluating current control methods and developing future management programs.

Publishing concise information about the weevils permits areas where control may or may not be successful to be highlighted. Conversely the review permits industry to focus on knowledge gaps and how these may be breached. Background Lucerne is Australia’s fundamentally important pasture species and as such it is important to minimise damaging losses due to pest damage. The management of pests is always important and it is of particular importance in the 2009 era of economical and environmental uncertainty.

Resources are strained and expensive and in some situations quality is compromised. For example, saline water used for irrigation may stress pasture stands increasing susceptibility to other problems such as pest insects. Pest weevils are formidable problems in pastures and other crops; typically they are unpredictable, damaging at low densities and patchy in distribution. Furthermore, they are difficult to control and consequently are insidiously spreading in Australia, partly due to the creation of an artificial but ideal environment. Insecticides have largely proved ineffective against weevils with the adults resistant and the larvae difficult to target (especially in perennial crops).
