Vine weevil are like the slugs and snails, the more one kills the more appear any suggestions as to how to eradicate them ? Nematodes don't work very well up here in North East Scotland, at least not in our garden,and the little pests are so good at hiding!
hi vine weevils are nocturnal so when it warms up get out with your torch and pick the adults off your plants this works and of course they will not be able to lay eggs.also as you are weeding and turnning the soil l keep a a look out for the larve.i found some the other day .good garden hygiene will also help.i've used pravado ultimate bug kill in the past drench the plants being attack in the evening pick the weevils up in the morning you'll need to sqash them as mine were still climbing up the jar the following after noon.vasaline round pots may also act as a barrier.
