    Last year, Bill Todaro, an entomologist at the Allegheny County Health Department, told WPXI’s Jennifer Tomazic that the weevils tend to like grass, the insides of cars and small kiddie pools.

    “They don’t bite. They don’t do anything really to people,” Todaro said.

    While weevils don't pose a health threat to people, they might be a little troublesome for your lawn for a while.
