Where does the Skosar live?

The Skosar is a common name for several species of beetles from the family Curculionidae, also known as weevils.

They have a characteristic long snout and fused wing covers that prevent them from flying.

They are pests of many ornamental and fruit crops, such as rhododendron, cyclamen, azalea, strawberry, pear, almond, and grape.

They feed on the buds, leaves, and roots of these plants, causing significant damage and yield loss.

There are different types of Skosars that live in different regions of the world.

For example, the grooved Skosar (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) is native to Europe and has been introduced to North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

It is a nocturnal beetle that prefers temperate and subtropical climates.

It reproduces by parthenogenesis, meaning that females can lay eggs without mating.

The Crimean Skosar (Otiorhynchus tenebricosus) is found mainly in the southern regions of Ukraine, Crimea, and the European part of Russia.

It lives in areas with warm, subtropical climates and rich red clay soils.

It is also a nocturnal beetle that feeds on various fruit trees and shrubs.

The golden Skosar (Otiorhynchus armadillo) is native to the Mediterranean region and has been introduced to North America.

It is a diurnal beetle that feeds on the leaves of various plants, such as rose, lavender, sage, and thyme.
