The some friends of Leaf Weevil folds up a leaf small, wraps an egg, and makes the so-called "cradle." From an inner side, a larva eats a cradle, and grows and become a pupa.
On the other hand, the some friend of Leaf Weevil lay eggs to a branch and fruits directly. If eggs are laid in young fruits, such as an apple and a pear, the fruits will be cut off from a handle. A larva eats and grows and become a pupa flesh in the ground.
