Vine Weevil Problem

Answered by Lynn Posted in Category Pest Control & Nature

Dear Lynn

I treated my containers with Provado vine weevil killer earlier in the year. Can I now use the nematodes or will the previous application stop them working?

Thanks.

Gemma

Dear Gemma

Provado keeps working in the soil for 4-6 weeks so as long as you applied it more than 6 weeks ago you are perfectly safe to apply the Nematodes.  Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer is suitable for Autumn application so now is a good time whilst the soil is still in excess of 5 deg C.

Adult weevils can also be searched for by torch light and removed from plants if you feel the urge to do so!!

Hope you get the problem sorted.

Kind Regards
