Thank goodness for small favors. In the case of black vine weevil, that the adult's damage is distinctive and the insects do not move far in their feeding and egg-laying. Look for notches as shown above, checking new foliage low on the plant to begin with since these insects are shy, slow and night-feeding. Where you see the damage, take action. Don't treat undamaged plants because the products that work on black vine weevil are potent, long lasting and very likely to cause serious collateral damage in local beneficial insect populations -- which can lead to more trouble. Best to limit that fall-out!
