He looks like he’s wearing a wooly jumper
That kind isn’t too bad; looks like an ordinary beetle & not an alien 😉
There are more than 2,500 different weevils to be found in North America alone. This insect is an enemy of man. They are so destructive not because of their large numbers or enormous appetites, it is because they attack the most vital and delicate parts of the plant—the buds, fruits, seeds, growing tips, and living tissues under the bark. When they are finished with the plant, it is dying or dead. 🙁
Not good, for sure!
