Field experiments to determine some of the hibernation and estivation habits of Hypera postica (Gyllenhal) in West Virginia were begun in December 1965. Soil sampling-s of caged and uncaged areas of alfalfa were used to ascertain the location and duration of hibernation and estivation sites. Adult weevils were found hibernating in the soil from late December to early March. They gradually emerged from the soil into the fields during mid-March through April, and they esti- vated in the soil from late June through September. Adult alfalfa weevils were found principally in the top 0.8 inches of the soil.
