Myllocerus undecimpustulatus is of economic importance, especially as a pest of cotton and other crops. Hosts in India are listed as: rice, maize, pigeonpea, cotton, jute, sunflower, mango, pomegranite, berry, strawberry, and apple.


Commodities Affected:
Field Crops, Fruits and Vegetables



The importation of fresh cut flowers from the Indian subcontinent, as well as of any nursery stock of host taxa, can potentially be the pathway for this exotic weevil.



The exotic weevil is not known to occur in Indiana.
