I haven’t asked you guys anything in a while because I’ve been really busy. I found this on a leaf of my water apple plant. What is it and how can I get rid of it?

Dear Darren,
WE identified your Giraffe Weevil,
Korotyaevirhinus necopinus orientalis,  Legalov, 2003, first on the Amazing World of Malaysia’s Flora and Fauna site where there was no name and then on the Up Close With Nature site where we learned its identity.  We do not provide extermination advice.
