Seasonal development and life cycle—Eucalyptus snout beetle

Female weevils may feed for about a month before laying eggs on young leaves. Up to 800 eggs may be laid during the lifetime of one adult weevil. Eggs may hatch about 10 to 20 days after being deposited. Newly hatched larvae feed on new leaf tissue; older larvae feed on leaf edges and pupate in the soil. Adults emerge from the soil and feed on foliage. There are two or three generations a year.
