Rose Weevil?

Check out this bug that I found crawling all over my lovely pink roses. Friend or foe I had to ask myself. So I did some research & came upon this site, which describes the weevil as 5-6mm in length. My beetle is more like 1.5 cm in lenght, but it looks just like all the pics I have seen of adult rose weevils. It appears this little creature is a foe to my flowers. I always wondered what caused the little holes in my rose buds, now I know, & will have to take action.
