Plants wilt, grow slowly, and are stunted. Leaves turn reddish brown; notches or scallops are chewed in the edges. White, legless, C-shaped grubs up to 3/8 inch long with brown heads are found in the soil feeding on the plant roots.
Monitor adult emergence with pitfall traps (made by burying tin cans to the rim among the strawberries) filled with an inch of soapy water. If you find adult weevils in the water, apply an insecticide labeled for this pest, following label directions. Destroy infested plants and any grubs found in the soil. Do not plant in soil known to be infested.
