How big are vine weevil grubs?

Posted: 26/01/2015 at 15:38

Thanks Dove, but the creeper is on the sitting room wall, not my bedroom and other rooms get aired too. But not today - Brrrrrrrrr too cold!

I would be very wary of composting couch grass, whatever you do to it. It's as tough as old boots and a pain in the neck. I've sprayed it with glyphosate in one bed several times and it always comes back.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Been too cold for gardening for several days.

HELLO FORKERS!

No, Lesley, not there - I looked. I think it must have fallen off at the party I went to in a rented hall on Friday. I must contact them, but don't have the contact details yet.

Am I going to be known as the bra lady now?!

Morning all.

Just read Verdun's sad news so written on other thread.

Hope you get the all clear KEF.

Glad Punkdoc had a good holiday.

Cold and grey here. Must get some more logs in.

How big are vine weevil grubs?

They are huge here too, but they start off as tiny babies so I find all sizes. Why do grown up vine weevils always get into My bedroom in autumn, other rooms aren't affected?

I'm sorry Verdun, you will miss her, but at least to die in her sleep is the best way to go. You were a lovely son and she would have known that and been comforted when it was hard. xx

My GH is aluminium and polycarbonate.

Is it glass or polycarbonate? I asked that question some time ago and was told not to use Jeyes fluid on polycarbonate, which is what I have. So I use washing up liquid. For the outside I use a spongy floor mop for the roof.

I meant to mention that you could grow some climbers, like clematis, or a rose, up the fence.
