Abstract:Pea weevil (Bruchus pisi) infestations have been found to increase on some isolated farms although only fumigated seed was planted and the entire crop was fumigated immediately after harvest. Pea weevils, which emerged from the shattered peas left on the ground, have been found hibernating in previously unrecorded places such as in moss, liverworts and lichens attached to the trunks and branches of trees. The presence or absence of suitable hibernating quarters may be a determining factor in the amount of infestation in different isolated pea fields.
