Vine weevils, can anyone tell me how to control them and when to start, I tried last year, but they took over again, what is the best way. and best to use. thank u



There are two methods

1. Chemical

Bayer Provado Vine Weevil Killer 2 and Scotts Miracle-Gro BugClear Ultra Vine Weevil Killer can be used for any container-grown plants (apart from edible ones)

2. Organic using nematodes

I've not tried either but i know you can only use the nematodes above 5 degrees c.
