The Diaprepes root weevil is a large, colorful weevil, 3/8 to 3/4 inch (10 to 19 mm) long, with nurmerous forms, or morphs, ranging from gray to yellow to orange and black.  Because of its broad host range, the Diaprepes root weevil poses a great threat to the citrus, avocado, ornamental and other agricultural industries in California.
