Phenology Model Database

Carrot Weevil

Scientific name: Listronotus oregonensis

Phenology models predict timing of events in an organism's development. For many organisms which cannot internally regulate their own temperature, development is dependent on temperatures to which they are exposed in the environment.

Information in this database comes from published articles. It may be used in conjunction with field monitoring and a degree-day calculator.

Note: Before using a model that was not field tested in your location, you should test the model for one or more seasons under your conditions to verify that it will work for you.


Model 1 of 2

Simonet, D. E., and B. L. Davenport. 1981. Temperature requirements for development and oviposition of the carrot weevil. Ann. Entomol. Soc. Amer. 74: 312-315.

Location of study: Wooster, Ohio (laboratory and field studies) Field data validated degree-day intervals predicted by lab data.

Developmental threshold
Lower:44.6°F(7.0°C)

Method of calculation: Single Sine

Degree-day accumulations required for each stage of development
Host: CarrotDD (°F)DD (°C)
Eggs:234.0130.0
Larvae:460.8256.0
Prepupae: 205.2114.0
Pupae:234.0130.0

Model 2 of 2

Boivin, G. 1988. Effects of carrot developmental stages on feeding and oviposition of carrot weevil, Listronotus oregonensis (Le Conte) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). Environ. Entomol. 17: 330-336.

Location of study: Southwestern Quebec, Canada (field studies)

Developmental threshold
Lower:44.6°F(7.0°C)

Method of calculation: Single Sine

Degree-day accumulations required for each stage of development

Start date: January 1

Host: CarrotDD (°F)DD (°C)
Air temperatures were used in degree-day calculations 
Preoviposition 264.6147.0
90% oviposition 820.8456.0
Sow carrots after 770°F (400°C) degree-days to avoid carrot weevil damage.
