I live in CT and have a small in-ground garden bed that gets plenty of sun and is located next to a large pine tree. I have noticed small gray bugs on my Mexican sour gherkins, chard and bean plants. They appear to be the nut leaf weevil which likes to munch on pine needles and often drops to escape being caught. I am wondering if they will harm my plants? They seem to enjoy hanging out on the gherkin vines under the shade of the pine tree in the afternoon and are in no rush to give up the spot.. a bit rude don't you think? I see no damage so far but would like to know if they can become a problem.
