Is  there any replacement for the chemical bromophos and is it any use against the dreaded vine weevil ?

I'd rather use nematodes - they worked for me last year on a really bad infestation of a bed of primula deticulata and vialli. I'll use them again this year as soon as the soil warms up and hopefully that will really have knocked them for six.

I don't use any pesticides around edible crops .....my parents regularly used bromophos when sowings carrot seed and the rest. ...think it was the done thing. Scary! nematodes, fleece over carrots and for the pea moth and companion planting are better options I think
