Annually, insect pests of alfalfa, including the alfalfa weevil and potato leafhopper, cause hundreds of millions of dollars in losses. Alfalfa weevil, (Hypera postica), insect pest of the family Curculionidae (order Coleoptera) whose larvae damage crops, most often alfalfa and originally from Asia, the alfalfa weevil was introduced from Europe into the United States in the early 20th century and is now present in all 48 mainland states.
