Pest Factsheet: Mango Pulp weevil

Mango pulp weevils look similar to the mango seed weevil already found in some parts of Australia, but the pulp weevil attacks the flesh rather than the seed. There are no signs of the weevil on the outside of the fruit. The weevils burrow into the pulp of the fruit to feed. The flesh rots and becomes inedible.
