Abstract: In 2001 and 2002, 89 strawberry fields from nine regions in Québec were sampled to determine the diversity and abundance of root weevil species. Soil characteristics were also assessed. We further studied the seasonal ecology of the strawberry root weevil, Otiorhynchus ovatus (L.) in the Québec City area. The strawberry root weevil was the most abundant species with > 82% of all captured specimens. Its abundance was positively correlated with sand in soil sample. Two cohorts of insects have been identified with a peak of abundance at the end of the fruit harvesting period. This period is most suitable for O. ovatus control as females have not yet initiated oviposition.
