Friday morning I went outside to check on my Hollyhocks. It and sunflowers are about the only flowers I really enjoy. As I looked at the hollyhocks, I noticed a rather strange sight.
I saw a lot of little bugs on one of my hollyhocks. Just under an eighth of an inch long, half their length was their nose. Of course, the first thing I did was grab my camera and screw on my closeup lens.
After I photographed it, I identified it and found ways to remove it from my hollyhocks. For those of you who don’t know, it is a Hollyhock Weevil. I believe the one above is a male, as I saw several of the gray colored ones riding the backs of smaller, black weevils.
