Spangler, S.; Agnello, A.; Schaefers, G.
The strawberry bud weevil (SSW), a species native to North America, is also known as the “clipper” because of its habit of clipping flower buds. In the United States, SSW is a widespread and common pest of strawberry, occurring from Canada to Florida and Texas, and from the Atlantic coast to Minnesota. It also attacks raspberry and blackberry, and is found on wild brambles and cinquefoil.
