Studies on the emergence and distribution of Eremnus cerealis Marshall in vineyards revealed that the peak of adult emergence occurs at about the end of November and beginning of December; the beetles shelter mainly in the soil within a radius of 15 cm from the stem of the vine. The larvae are evenly distributed around the vines horizontally, but are most abundant in the upper 15 cm of the soil.
